Under the guidance of their beloved mother, the four young March sisters—tempestuous Jo, motherly Meg, shy Beth, and spoiled baby Amy—struggle to keep their family going while Father’s away in the Civil War. In this beautifully dramatized adaptation of the classic novel, even as privation, illness, and sibling rivalry cast their shadows, each girl strives to find her true self.
Adapted by Marisha Chamberlain from the novel by Louisa May Alcott
“Little Women” was called a warm-hearted family affair by the reviewer. The reviewer went on to say,”This evocaltively rendered play is a testimony to the enduring popularity of an American classic”. “Little Women”, was successful both in critical terms and at the box office. A severe winter storm reduced by one performance the standard run of a play. The production still sold over 1,200 tickets. Before each performance, a copy of Louisa May Alcott’s classic book was given away to one lucky audience winner.
