Review of Jane Eyre in the Seattle Times

Gina Wilhelm Actress - Review of Jane Eyre in the Seattle Times

The Seattle Times printed a lovely review of "Jane Eyre", in which I appear in dual roles of Miss Scatcherd and Lady Ingram, today.

Showtimes are Thursday at 7:30 p.m., Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m., and Sunday at 2 p.m. through March 1st.

The theater is in Magnuson Park at 7400 Sand Point Way in Seattle in building 47.

For tickets, call (206) 363-2809 or visit the website for details.

In particular, the review pointed out the good chemistry between Jane (Danielle Barnum) and Rochester (James Padilla).

It also singles out the girls playing young Jane (Keaton Whittaker) and Helen Burns (Olivia Spokoiny). It doesn't say so in the review, but both of these girls, less than half my age, are complete professionals.

Other accolades are given to Jenny Shotwell as Blanche Ingram and Walayn Sharples as Mrs. Fairfax.

The review is highly complimentary of the performance, though has some criticism of the script itself.

The reviewer, John Hartl, particularly likes the touches that director Gregory Magyar did involving young and adult Jane.
