The Don Powell Theatre will be ending San Diego State’s strong season of theater with a production of the musical “Little Women.” Based on the 1868 novel by Louisa May Alcott, the play follows four young sisters as they deal with romantic and familial relationships.
The show is co-directed by Brandon Maier, an alumni of both the undergraduate and master’s program in musical theatre. He has done a fair amount of acting, stage managing and directing in the past, which makes him an exceptional choice for one of the producers of “Little Women.” The other director is Paula Kalustian, the woman who co-directed the fun Rodgers & Hammerstein revue, “A Grand Night for Singing.”
“Little Women” is notable for including all the Master of Fine Arts Musical Theatre majors in the cast. The students are all very talented actors who are considered to be some of the best in their field. There should be many standout performances from the artistic company.
With so much going for it, “Little Women” will likely be a wonderful conclusion to the this year’s season. Considering all the talent behind the scenes, it has the potential to be a phenomenal theatrical experience.
