Here we have a slightly lopsided review of Milwaukee's Acacia production of Jane Eyre: The Musical. The review is substantially positive but apparently the reviewer's personal vision of Rochester wasn't met and so the review ends on a sour note (they were anticipating 'a raging Titan like Heathcliff'). Well, personally I would laugh at a raging Titanesque Heathcliffy Rochester. Tastes differ?
Paula Rego's famous prints of Jane Eyre go on exhibit in Yorkshire.
