About this show

Patricia MacLachlan's heartwarming, Newbery Award-winning novel comes to life on stage in this DTC world premiere of an enchanting new musical. Living in 19th-century Kansas, widower Jacob Whitting struggles to make a good home for his two children on their Kansas farm. When he puts a personal ad in the paper looking for a wife to fill the painful void in their midst, he receives a reply from the strong-willed and unconventional Sarah Wheaton, a fisherwoman from Maine, who describes herself as "plain and tall - and not mild-mannered." With courage, patience, love and understanding they all learn to overcome fear and loneliness, rebuild their lives and create a new family together. Featuring a beautiful, tuneful score from the composer and lyricist of the hit Broadway musical, Legally Blonde, and a touching book filled with lively, moving characters, Sarah, Plain and Tall is a sweet, heart-filled musical the whole family can enjoy.
