In a press statement, director Samer remarked, "Everyone has their own 'Little Women' story, and anyone who comes to see this concert will be able to relate with one of the characters. It's a timeless story, and Steven’s musical adaptation brings the story into the modern world whilst retaining a classic musical theatre sound."
