Cute, whimsical

See it if Enjoy adaptations of “Little Women”, family-friendly, interactive, sweet, interesting staging. Marmee and Meg were excellent. Jo was great!

Don't see it if Dislike small, independent productions. Like to be anonymous in the back (audience is small and the actors make eye contact).

Also Show felt a tad long (but was adapted well). Use the restroom beforeha... Read more Read less
