A powerful ensemble dazzles as we are transported back and forth from the heart of an author, to her well-known beloved characters. Brilliant acting, incisive writing, and rousing musical numbers! What more could you ask for?! Time flies by, I didn’t even realize it was 2hrs long! ... full review

Meg, Jo, Beth, Amy & Louisa is a feast for anyone who loves Louisa May Alcott.--but it's not just for Alcott fans. I think there are many things to love in this show for anyone who attends. I am still thinking about this fascinating and original show and wondering at the beautifully seamless combination of storytelling about one of my favorite author's lives with a contemporary and comedic twist. It's a wonderful evening of theatre for anyone who wants to see originality, comedy, story, and a group of actors who love what they are doing. Their pure joy was completely contagious. ... full review

I loved this show. You can tell a lot of time, thought, energy and love went into it. It was creative, inventive, fun and occasionally heart-breaking. And you don't need to be a Little Women fan to enjoy this show. I went in remembering next to nothing about the book, and I enjoyed the show immensely. ... full review

It was a wonderful mesh of reality and fiction. The cast does an amazing job depicting each character they portray and not once do they stop having fun on stage. Humorous and endearing. ... full review

As someone who hasn't read Little Women before this was such a fun fast paced piece that brought a little more insight into Louisa's storytelling. It had a feeling of Becoming Jane, with a different story. Hilary Kelman (Louisa) was a beautiful anchor to a story that can be overwhelming but thanks to Kelman's gravitas and honesty, gave the audience something to hold on to. It has given me more of an interest to read Little Women.... full review

Firstly, this is no simple retelling of Little Women but a reinvention of that story as a lens through which we explore the author herself, and how a writer can reach out to others by writing "what they know". Of course, how a writer disguises their own trials, pains, triumphs and losses is often a mystery. Unraveling the mystery of Ms Alcott is uproarious fun. Without question one of this year's best Fringe shows. The team behind this production, Tier 5, also produced the best international production 2 years back. Once again, they bring a degree of craft, artistry, and inspired enthusiasm sorely lacking in most other shows I've seen over the years here in LA. Hilary Kelman leads a fully committed ensemble cast that takes charge of the s... full review

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. ... full review

Have you locked your heart, Elder?

Elder P. happily accepted the call to serve a Mormon mission in Sweden. He promised to lay aside all personal relationships for that entire time, accepting instead the constant scrutiny of a 24/7 working missionary companion. Then *she* showed up…
