‘LITTLE HOUSE

ON THE PRAIRIE'

8 p.m., Robinson Center Music Hall. $20-$52.

 

Since her star-making run as Laura Ingalls on “Little House on the Prairie,” Melissa Gilbert has not always lived the good life. She's been jilted by Rob Lowe twice, received a bad nose job, battled with drugs and alcoholism and guest starred on “Nip/Tuck” as a woman who gets intimate with her dog. But with a new book (“Prairie Tale”) and the lead role, as Ma, in this musical adaptation of the Laura Ingalls Wilder book, everything's looking up. With a book by Tony Award-winner Rachel Sheinkin and music by Oscar winner Rachel Portman, the musical's already managed positive reviews in its short run. For die-hards who can't imagine a “Little House” that deviates from the NBC mini-series standard, Gilbert has a few words of warning. “My Ma's a little more feisty,” she told the New York Times in September. “I'm a redhead … So there's some fire under those petticoats.” The musical continues through Thursday.
