Bronte - The Musical

Large Mixed Cast

BB Cooper & Peter Spafford Price: $7.99

“In a world where everything dies, only what we imagine, what we dream, will survive”

Brontë is a fresh treatment of a famous story with strong, tuneful music, set against the bleakly beautiful landscape of the Yorkshire moors

At its heart is the Bronte family, whose driving force is Charlotte

Charlotte struggles against acute self-doubt, thwarted passion and the constraints of her time, to answer the calling of her life

Will she succeed, whatever the cost?

By the end of the story - told in droll Yorkshire style by Tabby, the household servant - Charlotte at last emerges

Not completely likeable, but absolutely herself

Brontë is not a tale of grey hues

It is the story of a loving family who laugh as well as cry

A story of triumph and transcendence
