After a recent performance at Joe's Pub in New York City, last year's queer holiday hit We Three Lizas is back with a revamped book and expanded score. Box maker Conrad Ticklebottom's life has hit a stumbling block. At one time, his purple box sparked an entire movement in art and design, but now he's been forgotten and teetering on ruin. Just in the nick of time, the holidays bring three magical figures to his door -- a trio of Liza Minnellis -- to escort him on a fabulous journey through what-was, what-could-be and what-the-f*?!, redeeming his lost promise and reinventing a brand-new Conrad Ticklebottom.

The production was wonderful, and in particular the sets and costuming. All of the cast members were spot on, voices strong and full of enthusiasm. I cried twice (if that's a measure). The only negative is the small audience. NightBlue and the cast and crew worked so hard to put this production out there. It deserves bigger audiences and better recognition.
Little Women: The Musical, based on Louisa May Alcott's classic 1869 semi-autobiographical novel, focuses on the four March sisters — brassy, tomboy aspiring writer Jo, romantic Meg, pretentious Amy, and kind-hearted Beth — and their beloved Marmee, at their home in Concord, Massachusetts while the family patriarch is away serving as a Union Army chaplain during the Civil War. Intercut with the vignettes in which their lives unfold are several recreations of the melodramatic short stories Jo writes in her attic studio, put to a musical score with lyrics by Mindi Dickstein and music by Jason Howland.
