Based on Jean Webster’s 1912 novel, which inspired the 1955 movie starring Fred Astaire, Daddy Long Legs is a heartwarming Cinderella story filled with soaring melodies. With music and lyrics by Paul Gordon (Jane Eyre) and book by John Caird, this charming tale follows a witty and tenacious young writer and the anonymous benefactor who funds her college education. The only requirement of the sponsorship is that Jerusha write her mysterious patron monthly letters outlining her progress in school. Having only had a slight glimpse of his tall silhouette, she gives him the name “Daddy Long Legs.” As the years pass and Jerusha matures into an independent young woman, her life experiences challenge both parties as they come to understand their need for connection and the profound impact they have on one another.
