ROCHESTER, N.Y. – Saturday the Geva Theatre Center opened its 50th anniversary season. The arts giant has planned a year-long celebration of theatre in Rochester.

The opening show for this season is Jane Eyre, a 19th century novel by Charlotte Bronte. This year Geva brought on a new art director, Elizabeth Williamson.

“It is so thrilling to be here at Geva, taking on the role of artistic director as the company goes into its 50th anniversary season. It’s a gorgeous moment for Geva, I couldn’t be more thrilled to be here. And it’s wonderful to be able to open the season with my own adaptation of Jane Eyre,” said Elizabeth Williamson.
