Daddy Long Legs
Jerusha Abbott is the “Oldest Orphan in the John Grier Home” until, one day, a mysterious benefactor decides to send her to college to be educated as a writer. Required to write him a letter once a month, she is never to know the benefactor’s identity—so she invents one for him: Daddy Long Legs. Through her correspondence with Daddy Long Legs, Jerusha’s letters chronicle her emergence as a delightfully independent “New American Woman.”Yet there is one startling fact that Jerusha has yet to uncover—a fact that will change her life forever. Featuring a book from multiple Tony Award and Olivier Award winning director John Caird and a score by Tony Nominated Composer Paul Gordon, Daddy Long Legs continues to tour the country to glowing reviews and standing ovations.
