Description

From the Tony-Award winning director of Les Misérables comes the intimate new musical Daddy Long Legs. Join Megan McGinnis (Jerusha) and Adam Halpin (Jervis) as they talk about the songs, the staging, and the storybook romance at the heart of the play. Strand’s Ovation series is back for a witty and wonderful evening with the cast of this “little gem." Based on the classic novel which inspired the 1955 movie starring Fred Astaire—a beloved tale in the spirit of Jane Austen, The Brontë Sisters, and "Downton Abbey"—this heartwarming Cinderella story about a witty and winsome young woman and her mysterious benefactor has charmed audiences of all ages from Los Angeles to London. Critics and audiences are charmed by its "echoes of She Loves Me and top-notch performances," making it "one of the most enthralling, entertaining and moving love stories on the American musical theater stage."
