Come 30 minutes early, this is a nice place to be. Have a snack at the theater or take a short walk in the neighborhood.

This was a good play. The woman that played Jo was pretty amazing and the most engaging member. Some of the play was a little slow and somewhat disjointed. It was nice to see so many kids at this play enjoying it - it is a classic.

Enjoyed the show. The stars were enthusiastic and personable. The theater was designed by Julia Morgan and this was the first time I was able to see the inside of the building.

Description

Based on Louisa May Alcott’s novel about family life and love, Little Women traces the adventures of sisters Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy growing up in trying times. The Civil War is underway, and father is off with the Union army. Money is tight, but the girls learn to be resourceful, knowing they can never be really poor as long as they have each other. Pretty Meg, the oldest, wonders if she will ever find love. Tomboy Jo struggles to balance her need for independence with her duty to her family. Shy Beth doesn’t realize how much her musical gifts mean to others, and little Amy learns that she must think less about herself and more about her family. Their neighbors, the wealthy Mr. Laurence and his high-spirited grandson, Laurie, admire the sisters’ kindness, talent and pluck — and step in to help when events take a turn for the worse.

For ages 6 and up.

By Louisa May Alcott

Adapted by Marsha Chamberlain
