Theatre Review: Little Women, the Broadway Musical
Directed by Troy River
Based on Louisa May Alcott's own family experiences (and novel), "Little Women," follows the adventures of Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy March as they grow up in Civil War America. The beloved story of the March sisters is timeless and deals with issues as relevant today as when they were written.
Now, this wonderful narrative has been brought to life as an exhilarating new musical filled with glorious music, dancing and heart. "Little Women" embodies the complete theatrical experience, guaranteeing a night filled with laughter, tears, and a lifting of the spirit. This powerful score soars with the sounds of personal discovery, heartache and hope -- the sounds of a young America finding its voice.
Old-fashioned in the best possible way, Little Women makes a good complement to Wicked for those trying to entice a younger audience to the delights of the musical theater. --Elisabeth Vincentelli
