Theatre Bristol presents “Little Women, The Broadway Musical” November 18 through Thanksgiving weekend until December 4 at the ARTspace, 506 State Street, with tickets on sale now.
With book by Allan Knee, music by Jason Howland and lyrics by Mindi Dickstein, “Little Women, The Broadway Musical,” follows the adventures of Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy March as they grow up in Civil War America. Jo (Lorrie Anderson) longs to publish a novel. Meg (Emily Barnes) longs for a fiancé. Beth (Annika Burley) longs for a piano. Amy (Eden Phillips) longs to be admired. This timeless tale has been given new life as an exhilarating musical filled with glorious song, dance and a few tears.

Hyde, Jr., most recently Theatre Bristol production designer of The Music Man, Scrooge The Musical, and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
