As someone who read "Little Women" as a child, I really liked watching this play for the ways the story "explained" the parts of the book's plot that bothered me when I was a kid. It was a very enjoyable experience!... full review

I just adored this show. It's hard to put into words how fantastically effective the performances, staging and writing all are... that's why we should just leave the writing to Louisa. Hilary Kelman's acting is so poignantly thoughtful... presenting a full realization of Louisa through all her struggles and achievements. Every word, gesture and thought are absolutely authentic. The rest of the cast is just as wonderfully on point, interpreting parts of the script with wonderful anachronistic quirks that serve as a comedic way for a modern audience to relate to what only seems unrelatable. Although the silliness may appear over the top at times... it serves a greater purpose of juxtaposing the moments of true sorrow and heartbreak. Did I just... full review

This show broke me: As a playwright. As a brother. As a human being. This may be the best piece of theatre I have seen in my entire life. It feels like this piece was written for me. ... full review

A truly beautiful staging of a great script. I have not read Little Women, but the script does a great job hitting both the beats of that series of books and Lousia May Alcott's life, so even an Alcott noob can appreciate. And there's a lot to appreciate. The design and choreography were so thoughtful and effective, proof that you don't need a humongous budget to create magical stage moments.... full review

Little Women can sometimes be seen as boring because there's no "real plot"; it just follows the life of the March family. But THAT'S exactly what is so beautiful and heartwarming to watch. And Tier5 has done an incredible job of modernizing this classic and showing the love and passion that runs through this family and their friends. One of the most cohesive ensembles I've ever seen on a stage. The comedic timing of these actors is unmatched. Hilary Kelman's performance as Louisa, having to seamlessly weave through her story and her reality is fascinating to watch. I laughed until my gut hurt and cried too many times. This was a really special show; one that I will remember vividly for years to come. ... full review

Entertaining, endearing, nostalgic (for those who grew up on Little Women) while at the same time incorporating modern perspectives, very well-performed!... full review

A thoroughly modern, wildly engaging, and experimentally staged story of how Louisa May Alcott wrote Little Women, and why it still affects us today. ... full review

One of the best shows of the Fringe. From the excellent cast, compelling story, great costumes, dance routines, melodic breaks and touching tribute this is one of those shows you are proud to have gotten to see. A real treasure that had people in my audience crying, laughing and applauding all the way through.... full review
