A musical based on the novel by Louisa May Alcott

Lyrics by Mindi Dickstein
Music by Jason Howland
Book by Allan Knee

Performed by arrangement with Music Theatre International

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.

The story of the March sisters, aspiring writer Jo, traditional Meg, ambitious Amy and sweet-natured Beth has enchanted generations of children and their dreams and struggles is ideally suited to a musical format.  This adaptation opened on Broadway in 2005 but was not staged in the UK until 2018.

Little Women is performed by the British Theatre Academy.
