Daddy Long Legs
Music and Lyrics by Paul Gordon
Book by John Caird
Based on the Novell by Jean Webster
Directed by John Caird
From the Tony and Olivier award-wining director of Les Miserables and the creators of Jane Eyre.
Jerusha Abbott’s prayers seem answered when the generosity of an anonymous gentleman, known only to her as “Daddy Long Legs,” enables her to move from orphanage to university. Through her grateful letters, Jerusha shares her life with her mysterious benefactor as she grows into an intelligent, independent New American Woman and discovers a budding romance with a wealthy young suitor.
Yet there is one startling fact that Jerusha has yet to uncover — one that will change her life forever. Daddy Long Legs is destined to be deeply adored and cherished by audiences of all ages for years to come.
