Critical Reaction

“Ms. Hamill’s feminist-friendly spin on the classics never fail to sound an engagingly original note… an ingenious compassion of Alcott’s novel that is by turns funny and painfully poignant…it touched me to the heart.” —The Wall Street Journal.

 

 “…Jo has always been the most compelling character by far in Louisa May Alcott’s coming-of-age novel Little Women. In reworking it for the stage, Kate Hamill…has done the dramatically sensible thing and placed Jo at the center…the silly, malaprop-prone Amy blossoms fully into her horridness, becoming an excellent foil for Jo…Meg, [as] a frazzled young mother, gets a gorgeous scene of near despair…with just the right comic touch.” —The New York Times.
