Critics' reviews

Brooks Atkinson - reviewing the Chicago production for The New York Times
"Jane Eyre suits her better than The Lake and she is more of an actress now than she was then. Her part in the current piece is prim and quaint, particularly on the surface, and she keeps it fragile, dainty and immaculate all through the evening?.. She plays Jane with exquisite grace of moment."
