Milwaukee premiere of the musical nominated for five 2001 Tony Awards! A haunting, compelling score brings to life Charlotte Bronté's sweeping gothic tale of romance and redemption. The love shared by the young governess Jane and her master, the melancholy Edward Rochester, is nearly destroyed by a dark secret he keeps hidden in the shadows of Thornfield Hall. Together, they discover the truth that "forgiveness is mightiest sword."
"You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." John 8:32
