Learn About the Inspiration Behind the Book, Little Women, with a Live Performance and Lecture

Enjoy a sneak peek of Dallas Theater Center actors performing brief excerpts from Little Women before it opens to the public, as well as an in-depth discussion about the play, the iconic novel, its influence, and it's legacy on Monday, February 3rd at the Dallas Museum of Art!

At this event, Sarahbeth Grossman (Artistic Producer, Dallas Theater Center) will moderate a conversation with author Anne Boyd Rioux and director of the DTC production Sarah Rasmussen, who commissioned the play from award-winning playwright Kate Hamill in celebration of the novel's 150th anniversary. Hamill, who is passionate about creating new feminist, female-centered classics (Little Women, Sense & Sensibility, Pride & Prejudice) will share her insights via a video interview.

Anne Boyd Rioux is the author of Meg, Jo, Beth, Amy: The Story of Little Women and Why It Still Matters, in which she tells the unlikely story of the novel’s creation, delves into the Alcott family and how they inspired the novel and traces Little Women’s influence and its media appearances. She is a professor at the University of New Orleans and specializes in the recovery and reconsideration of 19th-century American women writers, many of whom have been forgotten or relegated to the margins.

The Legacy of Little Women will begin at 7:30 PM. Admission is $20.00 for students, $30.00 for members and educators, and $40.00 for the public. Tickets may be purchased in advance online at www.dma.org. For additional information, please call (214) 922-1818.
