It’s 1997. Alone in her computer lab, 13-year-old Jane escapes from the awkward throes of puberty by virtually jumping in a covered wagon headed west on "The Oregon Trail." Under the guidance of the all-powerful Voice of the Game, we watch "Then Jane" navigate the perils of 1850s frontier life, while '90s Jane navigates the different but all-too-real dangers of high school, college, and, eventually, adulthood. Jane soon finds herself in her 20s, unemployed and battling an undefinable lifelong sadness she cannot name, even as “Then Jane” continues to face the tribulations of the trail. With nearly two centuries between them, both Janes face hardships that seem impossible to overcome—until they find one another.
See it if It was a rough show to get through . I was itching to leave after 15 minutes. Bad script. Poor staging .... I wanted to root for it, but ...
Don't see it if I would not recommend it.

Don't see it if You care about plots that make sense. You are wanting to see new terrific young actors deal with a challenging script. Script/acting bad !
