Synopsis

Bronte - The Musical

BB Cooper & Peter Spafford

Published by Cyberpress

Large Mixed Cast
"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

REVIEWS

"A show that must surely have a future in the British musical culture. Success has been achieved in a sympathetic and serene approach to the literary substance of the story through BB Cooper`s music and Peter Spafford's well-written book and lyrics¦ Marc Urquhart directs this charming piece" ~ The Stage

"Passion and determination dominate the stage. This musical captures the pioneering spirit of the Brontës ... passionately expressed in the music finely tuned from beginning to end'" ~ Newark Advertiser
