The first European production of Broadway musical Little Women debuts at Manchester’s Hope Mill Theatre this autumn.
Louisa May Alcott’s captivating and critically-acclaimed tale will be brought to life in the next collaboration by Katy Lipson of Aria Entertainment and Hope Mill Theatre – the team behind Pippin which is currently being staged at the theatre. It will be co-produced with Knockhardy Productions.
Based on Alcott’s 150-year-old book, and with a stunning score by Grammy Award winner Jason Howland, Little Women follows the adventures of the four March sisters – Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy.
Jo, the eldest daughter, and an aspiring writer, receives yet another rejection from a publisher. When her friend Professor Bhaer tells Jo she can do better by making her stories more personal, she weaves the story of how she and her sisters grew up in Civil War America – a tale of self-discovery, heartache, hope and everlasting love.
This production of Little Women is directed by Bronagh Lagan with choreography from Iona Holland and design by Nik Corrall.
Speaking of the production, Aria Entertainment director and producer Katy Lipson commented, “This is our 5th production at Hope Mill Theatre in just over a year and we couldn’t be more excited to be presenting the European Premiere of Little Women there. We have been touched by the support of our audiences and can’t wait to reveal our 2018 plans.”
