“Jane Eyre” is a masterpiece that deserves to be seen again and again!

On October 16, BTSCelebs attended the premiere of the classic “Jane Eyre” and was completely blown away. Cathy Marston’s adaptation was pure genius. It honored the original story, while giving the audience an amazing visual of the main characters’ emotions. For this particular performance,  Amanda Assucena  and Greig Matthews exceptionally played the main roles of Jane and Rochester. Christine Rocas was mesmerizing as Bertha. The ensemble of D-Men are absolutely stunning. I can’t praise the dancers in this production enough. Jane Eyre is one of my personal favorites, and Joffrey did not disappoint.

The story “Jane Eyre” is all about a young girl suffering immeasurable hardship during her childhood, and finding a way to overcome the odds to carve a life out for herself. Over time. she successfully lands a good job as a governess for the cold and mysterious Edward Rochester. As she spends time with his energetic daughter, she and Edward grow closer and fall in love. However, their happy ending is threatened forever by the appearance of an unexpected character.

This production earned the standing ovation it received opening night. You don’t want to miss this jewel. It’s a one of a kind experience.

“Jane Eyre” will only run for 9 more performances thru October 27th at the Auditorium Theatre in Chicago.

BTSCelebs sends a special thanks to The Silverman Group and The Joffrey Ballet for the press passes.
