Little Women Information
About the Show:
Based on the 1869 novel of the same name by Louisa May Alcott, Little Women is a musical that closely follows the original plotline and adds a lyrical score. It follows the March sisters, predominantly tomboy and aspiring writer Jo, as they grow up and try to achieve their dreams in Civil War-era Massachusetts. The show also features short sequences from the dramatic stories Jo writes in her attic studio. Little Women opened on Broadway on January 23, 2005 and closed on May 22 after 137 performances. The original cast featured Broadway favorite Sutton Foster (The Drowsy Chaperone, Anything Goes), who was nominated for a Tony Award for her role as Jo. Grab some Little Women tickets and experience this classic tale in its new, musical form.
In 1863, Jo March assembles her sisters, Meg, Amy, and Beth, in her attic studio to tell them of her newly-written work, "Operatic Tragedy;" they are not receptive to the violent story. Their mother, Marmee, enters with a letter from their father, who is a chaplain in the Civil War, leaving Marmee to run the household by herself.
Aunt March, the girls' wealthy aunt, tries to get tomboy Jo to turn into a lady of society by persuading her with a trip to Europe. Jo and Meg attend a Valentine's Day ball, much to the chagrin of jealous Amy. At the ball, Jo runs into Laurie, a neighbor boy who is being encouraged by his tutor, Mr. Brooke, to meet important people. Mr. Brooke and Meg meet and are immediately smitten, while Jo and Laurie begin a friendship. Jo and Laurie later go skating, and Amy tags along.
Meanwhile, Mr. Lawrence, Laurie's grandfather, comes to the March house and sings a duet with Beth, who exhibits talent on the piano. Jo enters with Laurie, who is carrying Amy, who has fallen through the ice. Mr. Brooke tells Meg of his enlistment in the Union army, but before he leaves, the pair are engaged. When Jo prepares to go with Marmee to Washington to see her sick father, Aunt March turns her eye to Amy, planning to turn her into the society girl. Laurie proposes to Jo, but she refuses because she has different plans to achieve her dreams.
Three years later, at a boarding house in New York City, Jo announces to fellow boarder Professor Bhaer that one of her stories is going to be published. But she is interrupted by a telegram telling her that Beth has Scarlett Fever. She immediately packs her bags and heads home to Concord, Massachusetts.
Back home, Beth says goodbye to her loving family. Amy and Laurie return from Europe and struggle to tell Jo of their engagement. Marmee helps Jo cope with Beth's death, and Jo reminisces on their lives. She resolves that her own family is remarkable and she decides to write her novel about them, Little Women.
On Amy's and Laurie's wedding day, Professor Bhaer comes to Concord and has a very important question for Jo as well as some news regarding her novel. Order your Little Women tickets today to see this classic story performed live.
