This holiday season, gather your loved ones and enjoy Louisa May Alcott's much-adored novel, now transformed into a hit Broadway musical that lights up the stage. Little Women tells the poignant story of the four young March sisters -- eldest sister Meg, tomboy and budding author Jo, shy and gentle Beth, and Amy, the artistically inclined baby of the bunch -- as they come of age during the Civil War under the care of their doting mother. It's a touching tale of young love, personal discovery and the enduring power of family. Filled with memorable music, dancing and a whole lot of heart, Little Women will make you laugh and cry with its tragedies and its triumphs. Learn More

An interesting play. This production lacked impact. A big problem results from the decision to have the characters speak with heavy German accents. What accents might add is debatable in the abstract, but in this case, it made it extremely difficult to understand what was being said and was a huge distraction both for the difficulty of understanding and because it seemed so artificial. The acting was good, and the play is thought provoking. I am glad I went.
Quotes & Highlights
- " ... a significant and intensely moving new work by a proven Broadway playwright. This is a play with enough daring to look at the polarities of war with a strong sense of the complexity of human limitations." --Chicago Tribune
A highly theatrical depiction of four German, gentile women struggling to survive through the rise and fall of Adolf Hitler. This Jefferson-nominated Best Play of 2006 - based on actual interviews with women who navigated the landscape of fascism from the inside – received its New York debut in 2009, and will be directed by Artistic Director, Christopher Zinovitch.
“Once upon a time, a long, long time ago, there lived, on top of the mountain there – a mean old man . . .” Thus, our narrator, Ludmilla begins the story of three women: Gretchen, the working class girl who looks after an indolent father; Angelika who aspires to be a nurse; and Friederike, the daughter of an aristocratic family with a passion for the jazz clubs of Berlin – as they grow up under the new regime of Adolf Hitler. Each will face their own demons as they encounter the real demons of Fascism. This modern fairy tale is also populated by the Frau—an embodiment of Nazi power, who shifts from Schoolmistress, to a compromised clinician, to task master, to torturer.
All Through the Night features Cindy Bradder (Ludmilla), Colleen Carey (the Frau), Erin Stewart (Friederike), Jillian Vashro (Gretchen) and Kate Witt (Angelika).
Recommended for 13 and older for subject matter and violence.
