Haven't been able to see the new off-Broadway musical Daddy Long Legs? Fear not. Tonight's performance is set to be broadcast in its entirety, free of charge, online via Livestream. Shown in real time at the Davenport Theatre, the performance begins 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.
