Take in the sights of the historic Brucemore Mansion courtyard (2160 Linden Drive S.E. in Cedar Rapids) while enjoying local theater. Theatre Cedar Rapids will present two shows outdoors this summer: “Little Women,” which is running now through June 6, and “Bright Star,” which opens June 18 and runs through July 3.
“Little Women” is an adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel, telling the story of four sisters and their passage from childhood to women. The performance is almost sold out, but organizers have added a showtime for 7:30 p.m. today. The second show, “Bright Star,” features a literary editor who meets a young soldier home from World War II, bringing back emotions from losing her child. She then goes on a journey to understand her past.
