  1. That's... that's... unexpected. Then again, there seems to be a truckload of Jane Eyre stage productions going around the world at the moment, so why not N&S? :) Thanks for sharing!

    Saw a trailer for Downton Abbey on TV earlier - looks like fun!

  2. Saw DA on tv? So you'll be able to see the series then? It's gonna kill me to wait to see this because the more I read, the more I'm impressed with it!

    There seems to be so many musical adaptations these days but this is one that I think would be worthwhile!
