New Clips from Wichita Jane Eyre: The Musical

These clips are from the first public version of Jane Eyre: The Musical as performed in Wichita, Kansas in 1996. Marla Schaffel is Jane, Anthony Crivello is Mr Rochester.

Secret Soul

'Oh God' A piece cut from the show (and new to me!)

so anthony hopped up an octave on his descants at the end. super fun. I wish James Barbour had done that; perhaps not in his range.

that was awesome !

to sarah:

They were posted on YouTube. Unfortunately this is one of the few recordings I do not have full access to, although I do have an audio version. This is one of the most interesting early stages, so it is a pity I cannot see the whole thing (and, I am also a fan of Anthony Crivello, and his interpretation of Rochester).

to melrose plant:

Some parts of Rochester's music was lowered for James Barbour. I believe the role itself was changed from tenor to baritone, as the company which sells the performance rights specifies that Rochester is played by a baritone (if I'm not mistaken).

I'm glad you enjoyed them! I am told there will be more posted shortly.

Oh, yay! I have become sort of a collector of obscure songs from this musical, and I'm really curious about the Wichita version. Thank you!
