The musical version of Louisa May Alcott’s “Little Women” has the characters and story elements of the classic novel that people love, set to beautiful music by Jason Howlan. Lake City Playhouse’s production, with book by Allan Knee and lyrics by Mindi Dickstein, features humor, a solid cast and excellent vocal performances.
“Little Women” centers on a mother and four young women – Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy March – who must maintain the household while their father serves in the Union army during the Civil War.
The story is told from the point of view of Jo, an irrepressible young woman with unabashed passion and a desire to become a writer. She is skillfully played by Bethany Smith, who exudes energy and strength, both in the character and her voice. Her “Astonishing” solo at the end of act one is particularly powerful. More here.
