Directed by Jay Brock
Musical Direction by N. Thomas Pedersen
Based on Louisa May Alcott’s classic 1869 semi-autobiographical novel, the musical focuses on the four March sisters — brassy Jo, romantic Meg, pretentious Amy, and kind-hearted Beth — and their beloved Marmee, at home in Concord, Massachusetts while the family patriarch is away serving as a Union Army chaplain during the Civil War. Intercut with the vignettes in which their lives unfold are several recreations of the melodramatic short stories Jo writes in her attic studio. At its core it is a musical about family and the love that binds them together against all odds.
