Cooper's restaurant and bar across the street is handy, and the food and beer are good and reasonably priced.

I thought the cast was fabulous with very strong voices, wish the audience had been bigger. The stage lighting at times was poor, great at other times as with the backlit stories.

Description

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.
