West Coast premiere
By Kate Hamill
Based on the novel by Louisa May Alcott
Directed by Sarah Rasmussen
In association with Dallas Theater Center
Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel of the March sisters is beloved by generations of readers. Now her heartfelt story of Jo March and her three unforgettably distinct sisters, Meg, Beth, and Amy, comes to the stage in a brand-new version that honors the spirit of Alcott’s original while freshly interpreting it for a new era. The Wall Street Journal named the prolific and widely produced Kate Hamill Playwright of the Year. Her sparkling adaptation will have audiences falling in love with the March sisters all over again as they grow from young girls to little women.
Running time: Two hours and 15 minutes, with one 15-minute intermission.
This series provides Old Globe patrons with an opportunity to closely connect with productions both onstage and backstage. A panel selected from the artistic company of each show (playwrights, actors, directors, designers, and/or technicians) engages patrons in an informal and illuminating presentation of ideas and insights to enhance the theatre going experience. Each Insights Seminar takes place 90 minutes before curtain time on the Tuesday after performances begin, and includes an informal reception 30 minutes before the start. FREE; no reservations necessary.
