Music by JASON HOWLAND
Lyrics by MINDI DICKSTEIN
Book by ALLAN KNEE
Based up LOUISA MAY ALCOTT'S novel Little Women

New York run: Jan 23, 2005 - May 22, 2005 (Virginia Theatre

Plot Synopsis

"Based on Louisa May Alcott's classic 1869 semi-autobiographical novel, it focuses on the four March sisters - feisty, tomboyish, aspiring author Jo, romantic Meg, pretentious Amy, and kind-hearted Beth - and their beloved Marmee, at home in Concord, Massachusetts while the family patriarch is away serving as a Union Army chaplain during the Civil War. Intercut with the vignettes in which their lives unfold are several recreations of the melodramatic short stories Jo writes in her attic studio. "
