Louisa May Alcott’s classic story, Little Women, comes to SMT

Sunday, January 22, 2017

Seattle Musical Theatre, Seattle’s longest-running musical theatre company, has begun production for the third show of its 39th season, Little Women: The Musical.

The show runs from February 17th through March 12th; Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30pm, Sundays at 2pm, and a special Thursday performance on March 9th at 7:30pm. 

Based on Louisa May Alcott's life, Little Women follows the adventures of sisters Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy March. Jo is trying to sell her stories for publication, but the publishers are not interested - her friend Professor Bhaer tells her that she has to do better and write more from herself. 
Begrudgingly taking this advice, Jo weaves the story of herself and her sisters and their experience growing up in Civil War America.

Produced nationally and internationally, Little Women has been praised by critics for its ambition in adapting such a well-known story for the stage. This timeless, captivating story is brought to life in this glorious musical filled with personal discovery, heartache, hope, and everlasting love.

The original production starred the unparalleled Sutton Foster, who received Tony, Outer Critics Circle, and Drama Desk nominations for her performance.

The SMT production is directed and choreographed by Andrew R. Coopman, with musical direction by Alyssa Taubin.

The cast includes Danielle Barnum, Alyssa Hope Maas, Sarah Fairchild, Carly Hutchinson, Shoshauna Schepps Mohlman, Dawn Brazel, Shane Patrick Hoffman, David M. Connolly, Nick Hyatt, with Alana Peters-Whiting and Taylor Davis rounding out the Ensemble.

Tickets are currently on sale for Little Women: The Musical, as well as for the final show of SMT’s 39th season, the Cole Porter classic, Kiss Me Kate.
