I enjoyed the juxtaposition between Louisa’s real life and fictional life. The journey of the author’s own struggles with love, loss, forgiveness and acceptance was expertly portrayed and written. Bravo, too, to the actors who worked their butts off playing multiple characters, and shades of similar characters while keeping them clearly separate but so alike you can see from where the inspiration comes.
What I didn't like
I don’t know how I feel about the anachronisms. If it’s meant to be irreverent, something else is needed to make it known to the audience why and how. It’s a little jarring the first time it happens, and as the play continues I wonder why it’s happening. It’s funny and entertaining, but I needed a little more.
My overall impression
If you know the plot of “Little Women”, bring tissues. Meg Jo Beth Amy & Louisa is such a fun and real portrayal of the creative process: bringing characters to life and using their stories to work out your own struggles. It was beautifully portrayed and excellently written.
