The Concord Players’ decennial tribute to Louisa May Alcott opened last weekend with sold-out shows and gushing guests. Little Women, the Broadway Musical brings the story of the March sisters to life here in the town where the original Alcott sisters lived and played. These are just a few of the accolades heard in the theater at 51 Walden:
“Such amazing talent on and off the stage. I thoroughly enjoyed Little Women!”
“Jo (Devin Bean) was just so incredible. Every time she was at the center of a scene, I forgot I was watching a show; I was just IN IT.”
“The set and costumes were SO good – felt Broadway level.”
“The scene with Marmee and Jo made me cry.”
As part of the celebration of all things Louisa May, a set of four Little Women dolls are being raffled off each weekend, proceeds going to the Players. The handmade dolls were lovingly crafted by the sewers of The Players, each with a trunk containing additional accouterments. The final weekend will feature gift items and memorabilia from Orchard House, with those sales benefitting the Alcott home and museum.
While some of the shows are sold out, there are still tickets available this weekend and next. For information and tickets, go to www.concordplayers.org or call 978-369-2990 and leave a detailed message.
