After 146 years, we finally have a Little Women the way it was meant to be seen: live on stage in Hollywood with Lauren Flans playing Jo March.
WOMEN is the New York hit that won Best Comedy at this year’s Hollywood Fringe Festival and is now returning to The Asylum Theatre for a limited run. This fast paced comedy is a mash-up of Louisa May Alcott’s classic Little Women and HBO’s critically acclaimed Girls, delivering a smartly crafted and hilarious 55-minute show.
The show opens on Sept.5th and tickets are $15: http://womentheshow.com/. (There’s also a preview on Thursday, Sept.4th, to which you can obtain half-price $7.50 tickets with the code “preview”: http://bit.ly/bethdies)
Note: The show is sure to be excellent every night, but die-hard Lauren Flans fans (“flans”) should note that she will not be appearing in the 9/13 and 9/27 performances.
WOMEN is written by Chiara Atik, based on the novel by Louisa May Alcott, and directed by Stephanie Ward. In addition to Lauren, the cast features Erika Rankin, Jacquie Walters, Brigitte Valdez, Chris Farrah, Clayton Farris, Joseph Patrick O’Malley, Ben Moroski, and J.B. Waterman. Plus lighting design by Lost Moon Radio’s own Brandon Baruch!

Since moving to New York I haven’t talked to my friends at home as much as I’d like, because the amount I’d like to be talking to them is everyday, and, well, now that’s impossible. It’s weird how you adapt, even against your will — I don’t WANT us to need each other any less, but we do. At least…
I disagree with this but thought it was a nice piece of writing :)
