Come in while Jo sings Better
Jo! Jo, the girls at school were horrible to me! Charlotte Fenton said my dress was ragged and my nose was flat!
Meg- Jo, I hate being a governess. I should be meeting eligible young men.
It's going to be a dismal Christmas: what with Father away and no money for presents
Beth- And we're going to perform it for Christmas!
No, I can't! Not with my flat nose.
Jo- I'll be writing her bloody little neck if she doesn't! Another!
I want you - to get us a Christmas tree.
Jo- Rodrigo will go chop one down immediately!
Beth- But that's on Mr.Laurence's property.
You'll go to prison for it!
Meg- Look, it's Mr. Laurence. He's standing there at the window glaring out.
He looks sinister.
Beth- I think he looks sad.
I wouldn't be sad living in such a house.
Beth- Has anyone ever been inside?
He'd never let any of us in.
Meg- They say he's a very angry and bitter man. Jo's going to get us all into deathly trouble.
We'll be known as the family with the criminal sister.
Marmee, you're home!
Meg- Jo's written an Operatic Tragedy.
And she's inviting all of Concord to come see us perform it.
Meg- And I die in it, but it's a beautiful death.
And I play Clarissa, who's very sweet.
Beth- Oh, Marmee, it's Jo's best
Tell us about your day.
Marmee- Well - we knitted socks and blankets for the Soldier's Aid Society. And a letter came from father.
A letter from father!
Beth- She's outside.
Read the letter Marmee!
Marmee- We'll wait for Jo.
She may be hours.
Marmee- I want to hear all the things you did today.
Charlotte Fenton teased me mercilessly at school. I was so humiliated.
Jo- Take it back? That's like bringing back a chicken after you've chopped off it's head.
Do let us keep it.
Marmee- The day's are difficult and long. But I am well.
Marmee- Each night in my tent, I think of my precious girls.'
He thinks of us.
Marmee- Come, let's get to work.
I'll get my paints -
Marmee- Amy, what are you doing?
I'm going to the ball.
Jo- You're what?
I found this old dress and it almost fits.
Jo- It was mine.
I know. All it needs is a pretty sash. Besides, why shouldn't I go?
Jo- Because you weren't invited.
I can go in your place.
Jo- In my place?
You don't care about good society and I do.
Marmee- That's enough Amy!
But I want elegance and fine things, Marmee!
Jo- Not because of some silly sash.
Sashes aren't stilly. Aunt March says the right accessories could be the key to a girl's success. Besides, I'd never go to a ball with scorch marks on the back of my dress.
As big as your -
Marmee- Amy, stop it! Beth, get my sewing basket.
Jo hates balls. She should stay in her musty old attic and write her dreadful little stories.
Jo- My stories aren't dreadful!
Nobody reads them and nobody likes them!
Jo- I'm sending this one to a very prominent New York publisher.
And he'll hate it!
Beth- Goodnight, Marmee.
I'm sorry for the things I said, Jo!
A little squashed, but still edible.
Jo- Amy, what did you do with my story?
Nothing I -
Jo- What did you do? I was working on that story day and night.
I burned it!
Jo- You what?
And I'm glad I did!
Marmee- Jo, no!
Go on, I bare my throat to you!
Marmee- Amy? What did you do?
She deserved it.
Marmee- Jo! No, Amy. She did not deserve it! You did an intolerable thing.
Marmee- You destroyed what meant the world to Jo.
Jo has everything.
Jo- I write a story that my sister burns -
You could have given me the invitation.
Marmee- Your time will come, Amy.
No, my time will never come! I'm always forgotten! I'm always last! I'm never invited anywhere! I have nothing special -
Marmee- but I do demand you live together with respect.
I hate the way I look! I hate this nightgown!
Jo- It was mine.
I want something that's mine! And I'll take back that fan.
Beth- Go with them.
Jo doesn't want me.
Beth- Go anyway.
She hasn't talked to me in three weeks. I drew a picture of her with her beautiful hair and she just ignored it. Besides my ice skates don't fit me anymore.
Beth- Take mine.
Can I really? Thank you, Beth. I hope one day I can be sweet like you.
Mr. Laurence- Watch where you're going!
Sorry, Mr. Laurence!
Beth- She just wanted to be with you. Here.
I was skating so beautifully -
Jo- Everyone knows the ice by the bridge is dangerous.
But you didn't want be skating near you. I love your stories, Jo. I tried to write one to make up for what I did, but I couldn't think of anything to say. So I drew that picture of you with your beautiful hair -
Jo- And my big mouth.
And you just ignored it.
Jo- If it wasn't for Laurie you could have been killed
Maybe it would have been better if I had.
Jo- But a sister who loves you.
I promise, Jo.
Beth- The March sisters forever.
Meg- Here's the shawl Father loves so much.
Marmee, please don't send me to Aunt March's house. It scares me. Everything's so old in it. I drew this picture of you - with apple blossoms in your hair. The Goddess of Spring. It's for Father. Is he going to die?
Meg- Oh, my!
Jo- I'm not bald.
But your hair was your best feature.
Marmee- Come, let me hold my girls.
We've never been parted before. I feel awful -
Aunt March- Amy, tell Aunt March how excited you are.
I'm so excited about living with you while Marmee's in Washington.
Marmee- Goodbye, Aunt March.
And you'll tell Father how much I miss him- and love him.
Aunt March- I have plans for you.
Meg- And I accepted.
Meg? Meg. that's so romantic. Engaged? Meg's engaged. Have a big wedding. Aunt March says they're very fashionable.
Beth- I'll come visit you later.
Act 2 Scene 4 Starts
Everybody? I'm home!
Aunt March- Look at this house!
Aunt March- We left it in shambles - and it's still in shambles.
put everything down and remove bonnet
Did you see the look I gave the coachman, Aunt March? His impertinence! He caught every bump in the road.
Aunt March- Until you wrench the reins for them
Yes, Aunt March.
Aunt March- And remember, Amy, you're a lady now.
Yes... I'm a lady. Meg! When did this house get so small?
Aunt March- I have known people who have almost disappeared before my very eyes.
You're such a dear, Aunt March! Thank you for everything.
Aunt March- I'll go see to that wretched coachman.
Remember, Aunt March, respect those who have the reins.
Meg! Meg! Meg! It's really you?
Meg- Let me look at you. You're so beautiful.
Let me look at you. You're a mother now. Twins. I can't believe it.
Meg- Neither can I.
Marmee! Marmee! Marmee!
Marmee- You're all grown up.
I am, Marmee. I really am. I feel older. I'm sophisticated. You can't imagine all the experiences I had. And whenever I was, I'd think if only Meg were here, if only Jo, if only Beth-
Marmee- Amy -
I was so sorry I wasn't here to say goodbye to her. I cried for weeks. I couldn't stop. Aunt March said I was being unreasonable. But my heart was breaking not to be here with her.
Jo- Beth understood.
Jo! Jo! Jo!
Jo- She said tell Amy not to fret.
Did she really say that?
Jo- You'd have been proud of her.
I'd brought her this metronome. The man said there wasn't another like it.... Where did we get this magnificent piano?
Jo- Mr. Laurence gave it to Beth.
He's a dear, isn't he? It's so good to be home. In our dear house.
Marmee- Come, Amy. Show us what you brought back.
It's a king's ransom. I have so many things to tell you all. I ate frogs, actual frogs. And how is John? Is he still romantic?
Meg- More so.
I knew it! Men are so amazing.
Laurie- I shall be wily and shrewd...
Laurie, there you are -
Come, Laurie, help me with the rest of my things.
Laurie- She brought half of Europe.
I'll get the other half on our next trip. And later Aunt March wants to talk to us about proper wedding etiquette.
Laurie- Thank you, Jo.
I never meant for it to happen like this. I always thought Laurie as yours.
Jo- He's never been mine. He's always been one of us.
Jo, Jo, I brought this for you. It's a book of my drawings. I drew all the things you should have seen. All the churches and palaces and mountains... I want you to have them.
Jo- Amy, I can't.
Yes, you can. We'll be close, Jo. That will never change.
Mr. Brooke- Soon Laurie and Amy will be in a wedded bliss.
Meg! Look at me! I can't get married looking like this. The dress is not tres beau!
Meg- The dress is very tres beau.
Why did I choose white for the flowers?
Marmee- Amy, come, let me finish your hair.
I've made all the wrong choices for the wedding, Marmee. The flowers, this dress -
Mr. Brooke- You look like a Madonna.
Merci, John. it was all Laurie's idea to have the wedding at our very own petite maison. and i can deny mon amour nothing.
