ISM’s production of Little Women

By: Pari Apostolakos

IT’S NO SECRET THAT THE PERFORMING ARTS ARE STRUGGLING WITH THE ONSLAUGHT OF THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC. THAT’S NOT STOPPING DIRECTOR KYLE KRISCH FROM TELLING A MEANINGFUL STORY ON STAGE, MASKS AND ALL. 

OWEN HENDERSON WHO PLAYS LAURIE IN THE PRODUCTION NOTES THE RELEVANCE OF GENDER NORMS IN THIS SHOW.

NO MATTER YOUR GENDER IDENTITY KRISCH SAYS ESPECIALLY DURING THE PANDEMIC WE CAN RELATE TO THE IMMORTAL MARCH SISTERS.

YOU CAN SEE THE EMOTIONAL JOURNEY OF MEG, JO, BETH AND AMY APRIL TWENTY THIRD THROUGH TWENTY FIFTH.
