Louisa May Alcott's classic 1869 semi-autobiographical novel comes to life on the stage.
This production focuses on the four March sisters: brassy, tomboy-like, aspiring writer Jo, romantic Meg, pretentious Amy, and kind-hearted Beth along with their beloved Marmee at home in Concord, Mass., while the family patriarch is away serving as a Union Army Chaplain during the Civil War.
Adapted by Marisha Chamberlain from the Louisa May Alcott classic.
