“Little Women: The Broadway Musical” is based on the novel by Louisa May Alcott with music by Jason Howland, lyrics by Mindi Dickstein and book by Allan Knee.

The musical is filled with personal discovery, heartache, hope and everlasting love.
Director Kristen Rogers feels the show will appeal to those who already love the classic novel as well as those who may never have read it before.
