I thought that somehow we would always have forever.
Based on Louisa May Alcott’s beloved 1869 novel, Little Women shares the adventures of the four March sisters at home in Concord, Massachusetts while their father is away on the Civil War battlefields. Premiered on Broadway in 2005, this timeless story is brought to life in a musical filled with personal discovery, heartache and everlasting love.
