On October 16th, The Joffrey Ballet opens its last season at the Auditorium Theatre with the unique adaptation of the classic romance “Jane Eyre”. Next fall, Joffrey makes the grand move to the Lyric Opera House.
According to an official press release from The Silverman Group, famed choreographer and artistic director Cathy Marston is working hard with Joffrey’s talented dancers to bring Chicago an unforgettable show. The beloved Chicago Philharmonic , conducted by Scott Speck (Music Director of The Joffrey Ballet) will perfectly perform Philip Feeney’s score.
Marston’s highly anticipated version of Charlotte Brontë’s “Jane Eyre” promises to combine theater and dance effortlessly. “This production of Jane Eyre challenges the idea of a classic ballet heroine. After a difficult upbringing, Jane becomes the Governess for the mysterious Mr. Rochester, discovering the struggles of society’s expectations. With stirring choreography and a captivating Victorian design, this avant – garde ballet shows that love can conquer any obstacle,” the press release states.
“‘Cathy is breaking glass ceilings in the ballet world, and with Jane Eyre she creates an unconventional heroine whose trials and passions are beautifully articulated through choreography,’ said Ashley Wheater, The Mary B. Galvin Artistic Director of the Joffrey . ‘We are thrilled to bring her adaptation of Jane Eyre to Chicago for the first time following its successful North American debut with American Ballet Theatre this past June.'”
“Jane Eyre” will only run for 10 performances October 16th-27th at the Auditorium Theatre in Chicago.

Flashback in time to the Cold War Era with famed director Robert Orlando’s new film “The Divine Plan”. According to a recent press release from Collide Media, the powerful Fathom Events and Nexus Media documentary promises to amaze moviegoers on November 6.
What is “The Divine Plan: Reagan, John Paul II and the End of the Cold War” all about?
The press release explains it this way, “the feature-length documentary unveils both the religious and political history that shaped the passions of these two world leaders [President Reagan and Pope John Paul II]. By probing deep into the shadows of the Cold War, Orlando and those interviewed expose events that support a vivid and uncommon mission during this fragile chapter of human history. THE DIVINE PLAN blurs the lines of conventional documentary film making as the scenes play out through a combination of interviews with historians and experts, audio and video archives, and illustrations that blend graphic novel illustrations with cold war era Soviet propaganda.”
