Based on the novel by Louisa May Alcott
Directed by Dominic Missimi
With her father away at war, the indomitable Jo March tucks herself away in the attic and begins writing a joyful and heartbreaking coming of age story while drawing inspiration from her colorful family, including her loving mother and three memorable sisters. Directed by Northwestern faculty emeritus, Dominic Missimi (The Waa Mu Show, RENT), Louisa May Alcott’s famous novel is re-imagined in this lush musical featuring a powerful score soaring with the sounds of personal discovery, tragedy and hope – the sounds of a young America finding its voice and one family’s astonishing journey to love and acceptance.
