Little Women, one of the most widely read novels in the English language, has been transformed into a spirited musical that lights up the stage. Louisa May Alcott's cherished story traces the adventures of the four young March sisters -- oldest sister Meg, tomboy and budding author Jo, shy and gentle Beth, and the lovely, artistic Amy -- as they grow up during some truly trying times in Civil War-torn America, always under the watchful eye of their beloved Marmee while Father is away at war. Little Women, a vibrant and sweeping Broadway musical that soars with personal discovery, heartache and hope, is an enjoyable show for the whole family.

While these events are transpiring, Dr. Featherstone has to deal with the fact that his own layers of comfort - the electricity, the internet, the phones - are being systematically turned off due to lack of payment, all of which are reported dutifully by his African American adopted son, Michael (Phil DeVone).

Meanwhile, the exiled Dani Taragon fights for revenge with the dangerous drug-lord Karl Drogos and his gang of Mustang-driving thugs behind her. But all of them share one fear: Tornado Season is Coming.

But this is no run-of-the-mill miserable family gathering. Along with the traditional passive-aggressive silences and sniping, Dad has surprising news: he's having an affair with the next-door neighbor. The plot thickens when a loathed uncle is accidentally killed by the son of Dad's sweetheart, and the family reunion quickly devolves into a hilariously disastrous Christmas Eve.

Crumble (Lay Me Down Justin Timberlake) Nov 13 - Dec 20, 2014  
Jackalope Theatre Company at Broadway Armory Crumble (Lay Me Down Justin Timberlake)
 
It's Christmas again - the first one since the accident that killed Janice's father. For a preteen misfit, solace lies in headless dolls and visits from a flying Justin Timberlake, while Mother makes elaborate dinners for no one and confesses her fears to Harrison Ford. Under a decaying roof with a voice all its own, mother and daughter are caught in an endless loop of holiday rituals, while The Apartment begs for their care lest he be forced to take action on his own terms. Janice and Justin have a plan of their own, though, that promises to break the loop in their lives... one way or another. With her signature dark humor, Sheila Callaghan's ingenious language sculpts a narrative of an aftermath that is irreverently odd, acutely genuine, and absurdly hilarious.
