Jane Eyre The Musical Video Clips Encore

Back by popular demand, here are a few clips generated by Thisbeciel and this time brought to you by the lady Branwen- our royal patroness. Her magesty has managed to find more clips than I remember posting here, or perhaps this site has grown so large even I don’t know what is hiding in the archives anymore. The first series are from a production on Broadway in April of 2001 (I believe), very near to the show’s closing (which was in June if I remember correctly). The rest are from assorted publicity material- I have not actually had the time to view all of them.

An Icy Lane:

You Examine Me, Miss Eyre:

Waking Rochester:

Saying Goodbye:

I Know Who Heals My Life:

The Gypsy:

The Proposal:

Wild Boy/Sirens reprise/Farewell, Good Angel:

Secret Soul in the studio:

Jane Promo Clips:

Broadway on Broadway Secret Soul Clips:

ETA: These will be available for the next week, or for 30 downloads whichever comes first. Also, I may not be posting often between now and Friday. We are in the middle of midterm season which means I have exams of my own, as well as teaching assistant duties to attend to, and on top of this I have some seminars to write!



  1. Oh, thank you, thank you, and thank you for posting these!
    I have been wanting to see these clips for years now, ever since I first discovered the Broadway cast recording.

  2. My pleasure 🙂 This is the third time I have posted some of these. It would be nice if I had a website to host them on, instead of having to repost them over and over.

    Did you know that the show might be going on its first national tour next year (if I remember correctly)? Maybe you will get a chance to see it performed live.

  3. Thank you so much for making these clips available! “Jane Eyre” is one of my favorite musicals so it’s wonderful to be able to see these scenes again after nearly five years. I only wish there were more.

  4. To MaryBeth:

    Oh, but there is more. It just isn’t cut into clips yet. There are quite a few recordings available through fans of the show although they are not supposed to exist. 😉 I have two. As far as I know there are at least three, but probably more video recordings (‘bootlegs’) of the show. I think there’s much more than that but tracking it all down is a real problem.

    So, you saw the show on Broadway! The strange thing is that I never got a chance to see it, but the more recordings I see/listen to, the more I want to see the show for myself… I mean, live. 😉 The recordings are just not the same.

  5. I’ve not seen it either. But your blog has renewed the urge to see it 🙂

  7. “Jane Eyre” was one of the best staged Broadway productions I’ve ever seen (and I’ve seen a lot of them). It was one of the first to use innovative lighting as the main form of set changes.

    And the passion! The leads were were just so powerful, and James Barbour gave me chills during “Farewell Good Angel.”

    Anyway, that’s me rambling. I can’t wait to see what other clips turn up that “don’t really exist.” 🙂

    PS I vaguely remember Julliard and/or Lincoln Center having a collection of shows available for research purposes, but I can’t remember where I heard that so it may not be true. Here’s hoping.

  8. I’ve been looking for clips from Jane Eyre the music online for AGES, but these links have expired. Could someone please help me?

  9. I’m already on it- lady Branwen has agreed to upload them for me again, and they’ll be reposted soon.

  10. Hello,
    Would it be too much to ask you to re-post those videoclips once more?
    (the links have expired again)
    I’ve been searching them for ages; I never had the chance to go to the musical, but I heard the CD tracks and they are wonderful…
