A Broadway Surprise

I thought never to hear more about this production- the 1958 Broadway Jane Eyre. I know of it’s existence and nothing else. But now, one of its stars will be performing:

Jane White, who originated the role of Queen Aggravain in Once Upon a Mattress, has added her one-night-only engagement to Feinstein’s at the Regency’s starry 2006 line-up. She will perform on March 13th at 8:30 PM.


White most recently appeared on Broadway as Solange LaFitte in the revival of Follies. Other Broadway credits include The Cuban Thing, a 1958 production of Jane Eyre, Take a Giant Step, The Climate of Eden, Razzle Dazzle and Strange Fruit.

If anyone knows anything at all about this 1958 production, I would love to hear from you!
