Everything. Really. With one very small exception there is nothing here that is not praiseworthy. Yes, I know this box asks for specifics, but with a cast this large and show this complex I’d be here for days. You’ll just have to trust me it is all very, very good.
What I didn't like
The only thing, and this may have just been a consequence of me suffering from “fringe-brain” is that I had a little trouble keeping track of who’s who in the early chunk. Not in a way that made it hard to follow or confusing, just in a literal “there are a lot of characters, who are referenced by name, and the actors are playing many parts” which led to me thinking “wait is that her or her?” But this didn’t really detract for me, and it resolved, and the production does take steps to make this easier for the audience already, so all in all there may be nothing to see here (in this criticism that is, there’s a wealth to see in the show).
My overall impression
Excellent. There are quite few elements at play here and all of them combine seamlessly into a show that is hard to describe without spoiling the surprises in store. Needless to say the performances were delightful, the story well-developed without feeling bloated, and the technical (and other) elements were an unexpected treat!
Quick Clarification I have never read any of the Little Women books. This is important both because it didn’t prevent me from thoroughly enjoying this production, but also because had I read them I may not have suffered the confusion referenced below.
