A great American classic comes to vivid life on the ALT Mainstage.
Amarillo Little Theatre is very excited to be presenting such a wonderful piece of literature as it prepares for the opening of Little Women January 14-24.
Jo March isn’t your typical Victorian lady. She’s indecorous and headstrong, and one day she’s going to be a great American novelist. As she and her sisters grow up in the middle of the Civil War, they strive to be brave, intelligent, and imaginative young women. But as adulthood approaches, each sister must negotiate her private ambitions with society’s expectations. In a war-torn world defined by gender, class, and personal tragedy, Jo March gives us her greatest story: that of the March sisters, four dreamers destined to be imperfect little women.
The New York Times says “…Jo has always been the most compelling character by far in Louisa May Alcott’s coming-of-age novel Little Women. In reworking it for the stage, Kate Hamill has done the dramatically sensible thing and placed Jo at the center. Kate Hamill’s adaptation of Little Women…is a sublime example of how to make 19th century works relevant to modern audiences.
