The European premiere of Little Women The Musical has opened to five star rave reviews and standing ovations at Manchester’s Hope Mill Theatre.
And today it’s been announced that an extra week has been added to the show’s original four-week run to meet high demand.
The show will now continue to wow audiences at the award-winning Ancoats venue until Saturday 16 December.
Little Women The Musical is brought to the Manchester stage by the successful collaboration team of Katy Lipson of Aria Entertainment and Joseph Houston and William Whelton of Hope Mill Theatre.
Together, they have already enjoyed critical acclaim by bringing the classic musicals of Parade, Hair, Yank! and Pippin to the city in their quest to revive classic musicals – some of which have never before been seen in the UK.
The production has been heralded a huge success. Five star rave reviews by critics and standing ovations from theatregoers have all played a vital role in high demand from the public for the run to be extended.
Joseph Houston from Hope Mill Theatre commented: “What an incredible opening for the show – five star rave reviews, standing ovations, sold out shows and now, due to popular demand, we’ve added an extra week to an already strong four-week run. Little Women The Musical is receiving such a warm welcome for its European premiere in Manchester. If theatregoers are looking for a show that’s different this festive season, they will certainly enjoy this story of family, love and hope. Join us at Hope Mill Theatre this Christmastime for this wonderful production.”
