Flo Gibson brings dramatic intensity and an intimate tone to her performance of Charlotte Brontë’s 1847 novel, Jane Eyre.
The title character is an orphan raised by her cruel aunt. After a trying experience at boarding school, she falls in love with Rochester only to have their potential marriage thwarted by a dangerous secret that leads to her temporary downfall. Critics have since cited a modern sensibility in Brontë’s exploration of female identity and class relations.
With her confiding, raspy voice, Gibson draws listeners toward her in her portrayal as the title character in this classic.
