Lousia May Alcott’s treasured classic, Little Women tells the enduring story of the March family – a lively, American household living in refined poverty. With her husband away in the American Civil War, Marmee is left alone to bring up their four girls; romantic Meg, shy Beth, willful Amy and of course, fiery and independent Jo. Through the intertwining lives of the sisters we see the familiar frustrations, contradictions and duties that constitute family life and love. We share in the hardships and heartbreak, humor and humility of these passionate and unique young women. Based on Louisa May Alcott’s own family experiences in her celebrated novel, Little Women will enchant all of us all over again in this new adaptation for the stage.  Description couresy of http://cincyshakes.com/

The March Girls

This was one of my absolute favorite books to read as a young girl and I was so excited to see it on stage.  The March girls, Jo (Maggie Lou Rader), Meg (Kelly Mengelkoch), Beth (Caitlin McWethy) and little Amy (Courtney Lucien) share adventure, laughter, sadness, anger and joy.  Just like any other family of four girls today.  From the the  transformative stage and multi-use lighting the mind doesn’t have to imagine much.  The costumes were just perfect and of course my favorite were the ball gowns.  What girl doesn’t love a pretty dress?   The designers did a great job.

Anyway, do yourself a favor and go see this classic story of love, passion, family and devotion.  Be sure to check out my two favorite actors from this company, Justin McCombs and Courtney Lucien.  They are both magnificent, of course.
