Type: Broadway musical.
Little Women is the story of one little woman instead of the four March sisters and mother, Marmee. Most women are familiar with the Louisa May Alcott novel and at least one of the film versions depicting a Civil War-era family during a time of struggle, plucky sisters coping with the absence of their father, who is away on the battlefield. Money is scarce, life is hard, but the family is close, generous and devoted to each other. It's a warm and emotional story.
