When most people think about the novel Little Women, they think about Christmas. After all, the first chapter is about the four March sisters waking up on Christmas morning. The 1994 film starring Winona Ryder, Kirsten Dunst and Christian Bale is memorable for its winter scenes of ice skating and hillsides covered in blankets of snow.

It’s true; Little Women is partly about Christmas and the festive season, however with a storyline that has kept readers spellbound for well over a century it is about much more than just that. It is a story filled with brilliance, energy and heartbreak from the onset. It follows the adventures of Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy March as they grow up in Civil War America It’s a timeless tale which deals with issues as relevant today as when they were written.

In 2006 this wonderful narrative was brought to life as an exhilarating new Broadway musical filled with glorious music, dancing and heart. Little Women embodies the complete theatrical experience, guaranteeing a night filled with laughter, tears, and a lifting of the spirit. This powerful score soars with the sounds of personal discovery, heartache and hope—the sounds of a young America finding its voice.
