  • About the Show

    This all-new musical, based upon Louisa May Alcott's beloved 19th century novel, vividly brings to life the March family of Concord, Massachusetts. In a time of war and sacrifice, Jo, Meg, Amy, and Beth, guided by their mother Marmee, grow from girls into women, through romance and courtship, illness and loss, loving and letting go. Kim Oler and Alison Hubbard's moving Richard Rodgers Award-winning score, by turns funny and touching, is seamlessly matched by Sean Hartley's wise and witty book. This is a LITTLE WOMEN like none you have ever seen or heard before.
