Little Women at the Lost Theatre

"Little Women has to be one of the best new musicals to arrive on the London Fringe in 2011" - The Stage

I had a really enjoyable night at Little Women at the Lost Theatre, in Stockwell, last night!  There are only a few more days of the show left (it finishes on 7th January) so you will have to be quick if you want to catch it.  It was a full house the night I went and for a 180 seater fringe venue I was very impressed.

This well loved novel is by Louisa May Alcott and the libretto written by Peter Layton with music and lyrics by Lionel Segal.  It was directed by Nicola Samer.

Little Women was produced by Skye Crawford and Samuel Julyan.  Skye is the brilliant new Australian producer I met at our showcase at the Royal Academy in 2010.

There were some excellent performances in the show especially Claire Chambers deeply loveable portrayal of sensible Meg and Laura Hope London's  brave Beth - who are both Central School graduates I met at the BML Workshop.  I was also very impressed with Glenn Lloyd as Seamus, Beth's young suitor.

This is a really 'feel good' show and very faithfully based on Alcott's book.
