Primary Stages has announced that Mary Bacon has assumed the roles of Marmie and Aunt March in Kate Hamill’s adaptation of Little Women, currently at the Cherry Lane Theatre. Original cast member Maria Elena Ramirez has departed the production due to injury.

Ms. Bacon's previous off-Broadway credits include Dear Evan Hansen, Women Without Men and The Tribute Artist.

Bacon joins Paola Sanchez Abreu (as Beth), Michael Crane (as Brooks/Parrot/Dashwood), Kate Hamill (as Meg), Ellen Harvey (as Hannah/Mrs. Mingott), John Lenartz (as “Mr. Laurence/Robert March), Kristolyn Lloyd (as Jo), Nate Mann (as Laurie), and Carmen Zilles (as Amy).

Little Women began previews at the Cherry Lane Theatre on May 15, 2019, ahead of the official opening on June 3 and is scheduled to continue performances through June 29, 2019.

Synopsis: "Jo March doesn't want to be like other girls; in fact, she's not even sure that she wants to be a girl. Jo is ambitious, rough around the edges, headstrong, and yearns for a future she can’t yet articulate. As the nation is torn apart by civil war, Jo and her sisters struggle with what it means to grow up. Gender roles, political beliefs, poverty, and even love itself threaten to break family ties, as the March sisters try to reconcile their identities with society’s demands. How do you stay true to yourself when the world wants you to become a perfect little woman?"

The production is directed by Sarna Lapine and features scenic design by Mikiko Suzuki MacAdams, costume design by Valérie Thérèse Bart, lighting design by Paul Whitaker, sound design by Leon Rothenberg, and music by Deb Abramson.

Little Women Tickets are available now for performances through June 29, 2019.
