"Little by Little" began life in 1991 as a staged concert at The York Theatre Company in New York, following which it was rewritten and developed. In 1995 it received a workshop production in Greenwich Village before receiving its US regional première a year later at the Coconut Grove Playhouse in Miami. It was subsequently produced by The York Theatre Company as a fully staged Off-Broadway show in 1999.
