LITTLE WOMEN: THE BROADWAY MUSICAL Opens December 6 At Gallery Players
This December, Gallery Players will present the third production of its 53rd season, Little Women: The Broadway Musical; book by Allan Knee; music by Jason Howland; lyrics by Mindi Dickstein; based on the novel by Louisa May Alcott.
Based on the novel of the same name, Little Women focuses on the lives of the March family, filled with laughter, loss, and love. The story is told from Jo's point of view - Jo being a fictional alter ego of the source material's author, Louisa May Alcott - and shares her flair for dramatic storytelling. This revival leans into the episodic nature of the musical and delves into a world of memories that are not always entirely accurate or linear. Embracing the nostalgia that has been cultivated over 150 years of encountering this story through the book and films, this production shines a new light on the intersection of art and life. Ultimately, this is a story about coming into one's own sense of self and discovering how to tell your own story. Filled with colorful characters, lush music, glorious costumes, and nostalgia for a beloved story, Little Women is an "astonishing" musical, perfect for the holiday season.
LITTLE WOMEN: THE BROADWAY MUSICAL opens Friday, December 6 and runs for 15 performances through Sunday, December 22. Performances are Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 8:00PM, Saturdays at 2:00PM, Sundays at 3:00PM, with an additional performance on Wednesday, December 18 at 8:00PM. There will be an artist talk back following the Sunday, December 15 performance.
