Lovely singing and great performances. Only two actors, male and female. The venue is just the right size and the sound was clear. The seats that we got were great.

A musical by Tony and Olivier Award-winner John Caird (Nicholas Nickleby, Les Miserables_) and Tony nominee Paul Gordon (_Jane Eyre). Set in the early 1900s, this exquisitely moving story is the vivid account of a young orphan girl as she blossoms into a beautiful, intelligent and vivacious woman. A trustee of the John Grier Orphanage offers a proper education to the 18-year-old Jerusha. The benefactor’s only requirements are that Jerusha never know his identity, and that she write him monthly (though he will not respond). She sees him once in shadows and invents a nickname for her mysterious patron–Daddy Long Legs. Her letters to him paint a moving portrait of her lonely life in the orphanage, and the development of her mind and spirit.
