Cleveland Musical Theatre is presenting a developmental reading of a revised version of the 2000 Broadway musical Jane Eyre, which will conclude with a July 19 industry presentation at Opera America in Manhattan.
Tony Award-nominated composer-lyricist Paul Gordon (Daddy Long Legs) and Tony-winning librettist John Caird (Les Miserables) have revisited their musical adaptation of Charlotte Brontë's classic novel.
Juliette Goglia stars as Jane with Dr. Zhivago's Tam Mutu as Edward Rochester, and Ragtime's Stephanie Umoh as Blanche Ingram. They are joined by Alison England (Mrs. Fairfax), Graydon Long (St. John Rivers), Madeleine Pace (Young Jane), Lauryn Hobbs (Helen), Jeff Williams (Brocklehurst), Ryan Speakman (Richard Mason), and Amy Griffin (Miss Scatcherd).
The reading will be directed by Cleveland Musical Theatre Artistic Director Miles J. Sternfeld, with musical direction by Brad Haak, associate musical direction by Laura Bergquist, general management by Sean Francis Patrick, and casting by Jamibeth Margolis.
