Ambitious

See it if A for effort, some excellent performances, but does this play really need to exist? It's basically just highlights from LW w/some gags.

Don't see it if You want any insight into Alcott. There was hardly anything learned about Louisa except that she was probably gay and hated writing pablum. Read more

Disappointing, Entertaining, Has potential

See it if You are comfortable with works that are in process, uneven & very low production value

Don't see it if You want something polished or are expecting something revealing or fresh about Alcott's life Read more

Entertaining, Funny, Clever

See it if You like unique storytelling and a new angle to an old classic.

Don't see it if You find it hard to follow along a linear plot where single actors play multiple characters.

Quirky, Intelligent, Funny, Entertaining, Clever

See it if You love Little Women, you like ensemble-based theatre, you want to learn more about the background of Louisa May Alcott.

Don't see it if You don't like indie theatre. What this show lacks in spectacle it makes up with an abundance of heart.

Ambitious, Funny, Absorbing

See it if You like devised work, enjoy contemporary interpretations. Solid acting and direction in a tough space.

Don't see it if You have done a deep dive into Alcott's life and work, the show bridges two worlds and because of that skims the surface of both. Read more
