Based on Louisa May Alcott’s life, Little Women follows the adventures of sisters, Jo, Meg, Beth, and Amy March. Jo weaves the story of herself and her sisters surviving through hardship and finding happiness. This ageless, captivating story is brought to life in a touching musical filled with personal discovery, heartache, hope, and everlasting love.
“We are excited to share this classic piece of literature Little Women as a musical story. It reminds us of women's continued struggle between familial duty and personal growth,” said Jill Brennan-Lincoln, of the Theater Arts Department.
