First Pics! Megan McGinnis and Paul Alexander Nolan Make Mystery and Intrigue Sing in New Musical Daddy Long Legs
The Off-Broadway premiere began previews Sept. 10, starring Megan McGinnis (Les Misérables), who has been attached to the project since its 2009 debut, alongside Paul Alexander Nolan (Once, Jesus Christ Superstar).
The show, produced by Ken Davenport (Kinky Boots) and Michael Jackowitz (How To Succeed in Business...), has toured regionally and received an industry reading in New York last year. Caird, who also directs, reunites with Gordon following their earlier collaboration on the Tony-nominated Jane Eyre.
The musical is based on the 1912 novel by Jean Webster. Set in turn-of-the-century New England, it tells the story of Jerusha Abbott, the oldest orphan in the John Grier Home. A mysterious benefactor agrees to send her to college under the condition that she write him a letter once a month, and through this correspondence, she shares her experiences of discovering literature, adventure, love and self. Not knowing who her aid is, she dubs him "Daddy Long Legs." Daddy Long Legs premiered at California's Rubicon Theatre Company in 2009 and has had acclaimed productions throughout the United States as well as international productions in Canada, Tokyo and London's West End.
The New York production features scenic and costume design by Olivier Award winner and Tony Award nominee David Farley (Sunday in the Park With George), lighting design by Paul Toben (The Story Of My Life), sound design by Peter Fitzgerald and music direction, arrangements and orchestrations by Brad Haak (An American in Paris).
Producers also include Hunter Arnold, Ben Bailey, Caiola Productions and associate producer Kayla Greenspan.
