Little Women, adapted by Kate Hamill and starring Dear Evan Hansen's Kristolyn Lloyd, closes June 29. The play, presented at Off-Broadway's Cherry Lane Theatre 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 opened June 4, after beginning previews May 15.
Lloyd starred 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 also included Paola Sanchez Abreu (The Wolves) as Beth, Michael Crane (Gloria, The Body of an American) as Brooks/Parrot/Dashwood, playwright Hamill as Meg, Ellen Harvey (Present Laughter) as Hannah/Mrs. Mingott, John Lenartz (Inherit the Wind) 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 featured 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 served as the composer.
Little Women was produced in association with Jamie deRoy.
