Little Women, the Musical
Book by Alan Knee, Music by Mindi Dickstein and Jason Howland
Directed by Wheelice Wilson, Jr.
Musical Direction by Mary Medrick
When Jo March, who wants to be a writer, is told she must write more from her own experiences, she weaves a story of herself and her family’s struggles during the American Civil War. Based on Louisa May Alcott’s autobiographical book, this musical brings to life not only Jo, but also her beloved sisters, Meg, Beth, and Amy, as well as their mother, their wealthy neighbor, and his grandson, plus New York friends who eventually encourage Jo’s literary pursuits. The powerful music soars with the sounds of personal discovery, heartache, and hope.
