Ellen Harvey and John Lenartz Join Cast of LITTLE WOMEN

Primary Stages announces additional casting for Little Women written by Kate Hamill (Pride and Prejudice), based on the novel by Louisa May Alcott, and directed by Sarna Lapine (Sunday in the Park with George). Performances begin at the Cherry Lane Theatre (38 Commerce St, New York, NY, 10014) on May 15, 2019 with opening night set for Tuesday, June 4, for a run through June 29, 2019. Tickets are available at primarystages.org.

Joining the cast will be Ellen Harvey (Present Laughter) as "Hannah/Mrs. Mingott" and John Lenartz (Inherit the Wind) as "Mr. Laurence/Robert March." The cast of Little Women includes Paola Sanchez Abreu (The Wolves) as "Beth," Michael Crane (Gloria, The Body of an American) as "Brooks/Parrot/Dashwood," Kate Hamill as "Meg," Kristolyn Lloyd (Dear Evan Hansen) as "Jo," Nate Mann (NY Debut) as "Laurie," Maria Elena Ramirez (Fish in the Dark, Mary Page Marlowe) as "Marmie/Aunt March," and Carmen Zilles (Small Mouth Sounds) as "Amy."

Jo March doesn't want to be like other girls; in fact, she's not even sure that she wants to be a girl. Jo is ambitious, rough around the edges, headstrong, and yearns for a future she can't yet articulate. As the nation is torn apart by civil war, Jo and her sisters struggle with what it means to grow up. Gender roles, political beliefs, poverty, and even love itself threaten to break family ties, as the March sisters try to reconcile their identities with society's demands. How do you stay true to yourself when the world wants you to become a perfect little woman?

Little Women will feature scenic design by Mikiko Suzuki MacAdams (Monsoon Wedding), costume design by Valérie Thérèse Bart (Noises Off), lighting design by Paul Whitaker (These Paper Bullets), and sound design by Leon Rothenberg (The Boys in the Band, The Nance). Deborah Abramson serves as the composer.

Little Women is produced in association with Jamie deRoy.
