Upcoming Performance of Daddy Long Legs to Be Broadcast Free on the Internet
The show has teamed up with Livestream for a major theater industry first.
The entire December 10 performance of the new off-Broadway musical Daddy Long Legs will be broadcast, free of charge, over the Internet via Livestream. The performance, shown in real time at the Davenport Theatre, will begin at 8pm.
With book and direction by Tony Award winner John Caird (Les Misérables), Daddy Long Legs features a score by Tony nominee Paul Gordon. The show is inspired by a 1912 novel by Jean Webster. It tells the story of Jerusha Abbott, an orphan who gets a college education from an anonymous benefactor whom she nicknames Daddy Long Legs.
The two-character musical stars real-life married couple Megan McGinnis and Adam Halpin. McGinnis received Indy, Acclaim, and Ovation Awards for her performance as Jerusha in runs of the show throughout the United States. It premiered in 2009 at the Rubicon Theatre Company in Los Angeles. This marks the first time that a musical has been live-streamed to the world for free.
