Directed by Allen Lindsey

Based on a classic novel by Jean Webster that inspired the 1955 movie, Daddy Long Legs is a stage musical featuring music and lyrics by Tony-nominated composer/lyricist Paul Gordon and Tony-winning librettist/director John Caird. Set in turn-of-the-century New England, the musical tells the story of orphan Jerusha Abbott and her mysterious benefactor who agrees to send her to college in exchange for a monthly letter. Through these correspondence to her benefactor that she dubs “Daddy Long Legs”, Jerusha provides insights into a budding relationship with Jervis Pendleton, an uncle of one of her roommates, who introduces her to a world of literature, travel, and adventure. Yet there is a startling fact that Jerusha has not uncovered, which will change her life forever.
