STARRING PENNY McNAMEE and ANDREW SAMONSKY. Book by John Caird Music and Lyrics by Paul Gordon. Based on the Classic Novel by Jean Webster. After productions in 15 U.S. cities and in Japan, Canada and England, Daddy Long Legs makes a triumphant return to Rubicon where the show premiered. Set in the early 1900s, this exquisitely moving story is the vivid account of a young 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). Her letters to him paint a moving portrait of her lonely life in the orphanage, and the development of her mind and spirit.
