Set during the Civil War, Little Women tells the story of love and family based on Louisa May Alcott’s American classic of the same name. Written by Louisa May Alcott 140 years ago, the much-loved classic tale’s message is still relevant for audiences today. This timeless, captivating story is brought to life in a glorious musical filled with personal discovery, heartache, hope, and everlasting love.
Based on 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 her heart. Begrudgingly taking this advice, Jo weaves the story of herself, 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 is a story of courage in adversity, and of the triumph of family and love. Additionally, Little Women reminds us that “sometimes when you dream, your dreams come true." We hope you'll join us for what promises to be another fantastic John Jay production!
