The Little Match Girl is a fantastical, heartfelt, piercing tale about love and forgiveness. This world premiere adaptation of the Hans Christian Andersen story reminds us of the importance of doing what's right, not what's easy.

"...When Annalise finally dies and is guided by her loving, ever-watchful grandmother (Barbera Ann Howard) into heaven, her experience is framed as a difficult but paradigm-shifting lesson for the townspeople ó the girl died so that everyone around her could be shaken into examining their lacking morals. Meanwhile, she has achieved true happiness by being reunited with the only person who ever truly loved her. While true to Andersenís original story, this ending nonetheless feels like a convenient gloss over the tragic significance of a death in the cold."
