ABOUT THE SHOW
The most faithful adaptation of Louisa May Alcott's "LITTLE WOMEN" for the theater -- and for the casual reader.
Adapting a beloved 400+ page novel for the stage presents a challenge: can any theatrical version really stay true to the heart and spirit of Alcott's timeless "story about girls"?
Many dramatized versions (both stage and screen) eliminate critical events, or even stop at the first half of the book, leaving you wondering: "Huh? What happens to Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy next? Where are my favorite scenes?"
Kevin Cunningham's full-length play version of "LITTLE WOMEN" is different: all the dialogue (and even the stage directions) are taken directly from the novel you love, preserving intact the full journeys of Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy.
From their forlorn "Merry Christmas" through their heartaches, disagreements, tragedies, and joys; meeting new friends and finding their "heart's true loves"; taking their "pilgrim's journeys" from selfishness to compassion -- "LITTLE WOMEN THE PLAY" includes all the essential elements of Alcott's story.
