In turn of the century New England, Jerusha Abbott is the self-proclaimed “Oldest Orphan in the John Grier Home.” When an anonymous benefactor comes forward offering to fund her college education, Jerusha only glimpses his shadow and aptly dubs him “Daddy Long Legs.”

This humorous and heartwarming musical retains all of the wit and all of the romance of Jean Webster’s best-selling novel about women’s rights, empowerment and finding one’s voice.
