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

Quotes & Highlights
- "Lauren Gunderson possesses an antic imagination that seeks to invent its own rules. As soon as we’re drawn in, she shakes us and whisks us 10 or 15 paces ahead. A work of historical fiction, the play has much in it that is current and true, particularly the difficulty that brainy women have in gaining acceptance from their male peers and balancing intellectual ambition with emotional hunger." --Los Angeles Times
Passionate. Brilliant. Defiant. Tonight, 18th century scientific genius Emilie du Châtelet is back and determined to answer the question she died with: love or philosophy, head or heart? In this highly theatrical rediscovery of one of history's most intriguing women, Emilie defends her life and loves, and ends up with both a formula and a legacy that permeates history. Part biography, part sex romp through science, part historical re-imagining, Emilie promises to engage you in the romantic fight of her life.
