Sister Act

Arizona State University’s Lyric Opera Theatre knows that you hanker for a contemporary-yet-classic American musical that showcases five women. The perfect storm on your horizon is 2005’s Little Women, based on Louisa May Alcott’s popular book about a young woman who eventually succeeds in writing a popular book about a young woman. We’re not kidding -- but the intervening adventures of the poor and virtuous Jo, Meg, Amy, and Beth, their mother, and their suitors are what have stuck with readers for more than a century.

The tearjerking high jinks, featuring bonus literary fantasy sequences, power ballads, and a distinct lack of heavy reading, commence at 2 p.m. Sunday, April 14, at the Evelyn Smith Music Theatre at 11th Street and Mill Avenue on the Tempe campus (the “birthday cake” building behind Gammage Auditorium). The production continues through Sunday, April 21.

Fridays, Saturdays, 7:30 p.m.; Sundays, 2 p.m. Starts: April 12. Continues through April 21, 2013
