"Little Women," Louisa May Alcott's autobiographical novel first appeared in 1868. It has never been out of print, has been adapted into seven films, a radio show, several television mini-series, a number of full-length plays, a one-act play, international productions, including a Japanese anime adaptation. There have been a number of musical theater adaptations and at least one opera. Join us in witnessing the only musical theater adaptation of "Little Women" to come to Broadway, and now to the W&L stage. With a company of only ten, Alcott's enduring work is performed simply and without fanfare, much like the novel itself. The musical focuses on the distinct personalities and individual strengths of these women as they navigate and overcome the social restraints of the 1860's. In reality, this "Little Women" is a delightful musical that not only will entertain but will also allow us to examine where we are today. What restraints, new and old, do we contend with over 150 years later?

Streaming of "LITTLE WOMEN The Broadway Musical" is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI.
