“While it is a classic of a different era, Little Women the novel cherishes family and celebrates strong, independent women – two ideals that are more important than ever in our current times,” says director/choreographer Lalainia Lindbjerg Strelau. “We are thrilled to brighten up the festive season for families of all ages with the joyous music of this Broadway hit and hope to inspire a whole new generation of Little Women fans!”
Originally written in two parts by Louisa May Alcott in 1868 and 1869, Little Women is a semi- autobiographical novel that follows four sisters: Meg, a hopeless romantic; Jo, an aspiring writer; the hard-nosed Amy; and the kind-as-can-be Beth. Under the watchful eyes of their mother, the sisters navigate hilarity, tragedy and romance on their fateful journey to adulthood. Filled with the same love, laughter, heartbreak and wisdom as Alcott’s narrative, the 2005 musical adaption with music by Jason Howland and lyrics by Mindi Dickstein brings these characters alive anew on the stage.
Little Women opens December 27th at the Kay Meek Centre. Tickets and more information here.
