The Story

This innocent and beautiful award-winning musical traces the emergence of an unexpected romance and a young lady’s journey into womanhood. In 1900s New England, Jerusha Abbott is the “Oldest Orphan in the Jon Grier Home,” until an anonymous benefactor decides to send her to college. Through witty and wistful letters, Jerusha faithfully corresponds with the mysterious stranger she affectionately nicknames Daddy Long Legs. This elegant musical love story is a testament to the power of the written word and its ability to touch our hearts.
