Jo in "Little Women"

"The 15-member cast I heard seemingly rejoiced in their collective and individual commands of Adamo’s idiom. The characters were exceedingly well differentiated and honestly inhabited. The dominant figure in the narrative, Jo, as Alexandra Dietrich conveyed her on Sunday, was large of personality with an instrument to match. She traced the evolution of the protagonist with polish and star power. The vivid interactions among the sisters illuminated the proceeding like a graphic novel...But throughout all solos and ensembles in which she figured so centrally, Dietrich’s Jo ruled indefatigably. I imagined her in a monodrama such as Erwartung or La voix humaine."
