With buoyant, joyful melodies, memorable characters, and a big-hearted message, Louisa May Alcott’s classic story of the adventures of the four March sisters is brought to vivid life in LITTLE WOMEN, The Broadway Musical. The story follows the lives, loves and tribulations of the sisters growing up during the American Civil War. Meg, Jo, Beth & Amy live in Concord, Massachusetts with their Marmee while their father is on the battlefield. Filled with adventure (both lived and imagined), heartbreak, and a deep sense of hope, the struggle of these “Little Women” to find their own voices mirrors the growing pains of a young America, reminding us that “sometimes when you dream, your dreams come true.”
