Dear Evan Hansen and Paradise Blue star Kristolyn Lloyd will lead the cast of the upcoming Off-Broadway production of Little Women by Kate Hamill. The play, presented by Primary Stages, is based on Louisa May Alcott's celebrated novel with direction by Sarna Lapine (Sunday in the Park with George).
Little Women will begin performances May 15 at the Cherry Lane Theatre. The run is scheduled through June 29 with a June 4 opening.
Lloyd will star as Jo March—ambitious, headstrong, and yearning for a future she can’t yet articulate. As the nation is torn apart by civil war, Jo and her sisters struggle with what it means to grow up, and how to reconcile their identities with society’s demands.
The cast of Little Women will also include Paola Sanchez Abreu (The Wolves) as Beth, Megan Byrne (Arcadia) as Hannah/Mrs. Mingott, Michael Crane (Gloria, The Body of an American) as Brooks/Parrot/Dashwood, playwright Hamill as Meg, Andrew Long (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child) as Mr. Laurence/Robert March, Nate Mann (Off-Broadway debut) as Laurie, Maria Elena Ramirez (Fish in the Dark, Mary Page Marlowe) as Marmie/Aunt March, and Carmen Zilles (Small Mouth Sounds) as Amy.
Little Women will feature scenic design by Mikiko Suzuki MacAdams (Monsoon Wedding), costume design by Valérie Thérèse Bart (Noises Off), lighting design by Paul Whitaker (These Paper Bullets), and sound design by Leon Rothenberg (The Boys in the Band, The Nance). Deborah Abramson serves as the composer.
Little Women is produced in association with Jamie deRoy. For tickets and more information visit PrimaryStages.org.
