Gallery Players presents this musical adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s classic, which tells the story of Jo and her sisters and their experience growing up in Civil War America. More…
From the show:
Based on Louisa May Alcott’s life, Little Women follows the adventures of sisters Jo, Meg, Beth, and Amy March, their strong and compassionate mother, and the boy next door, Laurie, who becomes connected to the family. Jo is trying to sell her stories for publication, but the publishers are not interested in fiction written by a woman – when her friend 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, and the musical unfolds with lush music and stirring memories that explore the strength of women and the power of family.
See it if you enjoy summer stock (few of actors are Equity). Some gr voices. I like no-miking; gd musicians. Jo is very gd. LW script is lacking.
Don't see it if you want gr lyrics. Brway show (w Sutton F!) lasted 4 mos. But GP makes the most of sentimental LW. Weakest perf=Marmee. Well-staged. Fun!
See it if Stafford's Jo & Boyaggi's Marmee keep this musicalization of Alcott's classic involving w/Gelles' brisk, competent staging on expansive set
Don't see it if Unfortunately, the music & lyrics are mediocre at best Too many lame songs lengthen & ultimately undermine this period tale of "girl power"
See it if you like good community theater-cast pours themselves into a demanding production, singing, acting & resetting the stage in great costumes.
Don't see it if you're bothered by not hearing it all: sometimes music downs voices and speaking and singing away from audience is lost as there are no mics
See it if You love the story of Little Women. You want to support a wonderful, inclusive, community theatre. You want a very talented musical cast.
Don't see it if You want varied, interesting music that moves the characters & story along. Everything's on 1 bland level & merely repeats what's already...
Also been said in the text.
