The Way Off Broadway Dinner Theatre, which kicked of its 2019/2020 Season last month with the opening of the cult comedy favorite Little Shop of Horrors, has announced auditions for its upcoming production of Little Women: The Broadway Musical.
Based on Louisa May Alcott's life, Little Women follows the adventures of sisters, 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 do better and write more from herself. Begrudgingly taking this advice, Jo weaves the story of herself and her sisters and their experience growing up in Civil War America. This timeless, captivating story is brought to life in this glorious musical filled with personal discovery, heartache, hope, and everlasting love.
