Little Women: West Texas A&M University's theater department will continue its season with this musical adaptation of the beloved Louisa May Alcott. You can read my preview here. I saw the show last week and was delightedly surprised. I've listened to the cast recording a couple of times and wasn't particularly taken with it, but director Andrew Barratt Lewis' staging (and the set of Tana Roberson) really brought it to life nicely. The young cast is, almost to a person, extraordinarily solid, but special kudos to Maddie Todd as the fiery Jo and Laurel Smalley as Marmee. Quite recommended. (7:30 p.m. Thursday; continues through Sunday. WT Branding Iron Theatre in the Sybil B. Harrington Fine Arts Complex. Tickets $16 adults, $12 students, free for WT students, faculty and staff. 806-651-2804)
