 Little Women remains a major novel in American fiction and its popularity still endures. The story has been translated into over one hundred languages, adapted for the cinema four times, for television twice, and for the stage five times — making the March clan one of the most famous literary families. Little Women: The Broadway Musical, with a book by Allan Knee, lyrics by Mindi Dickstein and music by Jason Howland, centers on the journey of high-spirited Jo March and her determination to establish herself as a writer. Set against the backdrop of the Civil War, the March family’s trials remain timeless and enduring. This heart-warming coming-of-age tale is an ideal musical for the entire family – especially mothers and daughters. To quote the Deseret Morning News, “A fine script by Allan Knee and an effervescent score by composer Jason Howland and lyricist Mindi Dickstein, this one soars!”
