Louisa May Alcott's American classic is brought to life on stage! The original production starred the unparalleled Sutton Foster, who received Tony, Outer Critics Circle, and Drama Desk nominations for her performance. Produced nationally and internationally, LITTLE WOMEN has been praised by critics for its ambition in taking such a well-known story to the stage.

Based on Louisa May Alcott's life, LITTLE WOMEN, follows the adventures of sisters Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy March. Jo is trying to sell her stories for publication, but the publishers are not interested - her friend Professor Bhaer tells her that she has to do better and write more from herself. Begrudgingly taking this advice, Jo weaves the story of herself and her sisters and their experience growing up in Civil War America.

LITTLE WOMEN embodies the complete theatrical experience, guaranteeing a night filled with laughter, tears, and a lifting of the spirit. LITTLE WOMEN features plenty of great opportunities for female actors and singers ranging in age from teenage to 60 years old. The show also has a flexible cast size that can include as few as 10 or as many as 42 people! The powerful score soars with the sounds of personal discovery, heartache and hope -- the sounds of a young America finding its voice.
