Really wonderful, the performers were superb and the writing and music were charming and touched my heart. So glad I saw it thanks to Gold Star! I even bought the CD! The theatre is also great.

Music and Lyrics by Paul Gordon

Book by John Caird

Directed by John Caird

A brand new musical event from the Tony and Olivier Award-winning director of Les Misérables and the creator of Jane Eyre, Daddy Long Legs_, with music and lyrics by Paul Gordon (Jane Eyre_), book and direction by Tony and Olivier award-winner John Caird (Les Miserables), original musical direction by Laura Bergquist, musical direction by Julie McBride and featuring Megan McGinnis and Robert Adelman Hancock. 

Don’t miss this new musical event by Tony and Olivier Award-winner John Caird (Nicholas Nickelby, Les Miserables_) and the Tony-nominee Paul Gordon (_Jane Eyre), that began its life at the Rubicon Theatre in Ventura and has been revised and reworked at such great regional theatres as the Northlight in Chicago and TheatreWorks in Palo Alto prior to its La Mirada debut! Set in turn-of-thecentury New England, this is the exquisitely moving story of Jerusha Abbot, a talented orphan sent to a prestigious college by an anonymous benefactor she nicknames Daddy Long Legs. Revealed through witty, wistful letters, her journey to self-sufficiency, education, and romance chronicles the emergence of a delightfully independent American woman. Presented by La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts and McCoy Rigby Entertainment in association with Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park, Rubicon Theatre Company, TheatreWorks, David Elzer and Michael Jackowitz.
