Brown Paper Box Co. concludes their 2018/2019 season with their Jeff Recommended production of Little Women the Musical running now through February 9, 2019 at Strawdog Theatre. Tickets and information can be found by visiting www.BrownPaperBox.org.


Celebrating its 150th year since publication, the timeless story of the March sisters is brought to life in this Broadway chamber musical filled with personal discovery, heartache, hope, and love. Based on Louisa May Alcott's life, Little Women the Musical follows the adventures of 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 write more from her own point of view and life experience. Begrudgingly taking this advice, Jo weaves the story of her sisters and their experiences growing up in Concord, Massachusetts during the American Civil War.

Under the co-direction of Artistic Associate Stephanie Rohr & company co-founder M. William Panek and music direction of Artistic Associates T.J. Anderson & Justin Harner, Brown Paper Box Co.'s production will focus on their season's mantra of returning "back to the basics." This "theatre, plain and simple" approach will re-orchestrate the Broadway score for single piano to transport Jo's memories and the events of the musical into her childhood attic, designed by Artistic Associate Jeremy Hollis.

Brown Paper Box Co. is also proud to support the hundreds of federal workers who were furloughed because of the government shutdown.
