Act One Daddy Long Legs (musical)_section_8

In an orphanage called the John Grier Home, Jerusha Abbott calls the first Monday of every month a "perfectly awful day" due to orphanage's trustees' monthly visit and how she bears the load of the preparations. Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_54

After the visit, Mrs. Lippett, the home's matron, calls for Jerusha in her office. Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_55

On her way there, she glimpses one of the Trustee's long, spindly, and spidery shadow cast by the headlights of his awaiting car ("The Oldest Orphan in the John Grier Home"). Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_56

Mrs. Lippett hands her a letter from the Trustee she just saw leaving the home. Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_57

Impressed by her amusing satirical essays about life at the orphanage, he devised a nine-point plan for her further education. Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_58

The Trustee will be sending her to a local college with all expenses paid, with the intention that she educate herself to become a writer. Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_59

The only condition is that Jerusha must write to him reporting her progress and impressions of the college, and that he will remain anonymous, only to be addressed as "Mr. Smith". Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_60

Her letters will never be answered, nor take the slightest attention to them ("Who Is This Man?"). Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_61

Jerusha arrives at the college, and begins to pen her first letter. Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_62

She complains regarding her benefactor's alias: "Why couldn't you have picked out a name with a little personality?" Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_63

After musing over what she'll call her mysterious benefactor, she finally decides on "Daddy Long Legs" due to his tall figure and she imagining him to be old and gray ("Mr. Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_64

Girl Hater"). Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_65

In his study in Manhattan, young philanthropist Jervis Pendleton, Jerusha's benefactor, is amused and puzzled over her first letter ("She Thinks I'm Old"). Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_66

Jerusha writes about her lessons from her freshman year classes ("Freshman Year Studies"), and describes her anxiety over trying to fit in with the other girls at her college due to her upbringing in an orphanage ("Like Other Girls"). Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_67

She then writes about her embarrassment at her lack of education and her excitement about learning ("Things I Didn't Know"). Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_68

During the Christmas vacation, Jerusha stays behind in the college to catch up on her reading, and sends her love to Daddy Long Legs in her loneliness. Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_69

The shy and awkward Jervis finds her affection-filled letters disconcerting ("What Does She Mean By Love?"). Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_70

Jerusha flunks two of her first exams and is mortified. Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_71

She becomes ill and writes angrily to Daddy Long Legs, accusing him of not caring for her and simply supporting her merely out of charity. Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_72

Moved by this, Jervis sends her a bouquet of flowers, and Jerusha is penitent ("I'm A Beast"). Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_73

Enthralled by her letters, Jervis arranges to meet his young beneficiary, under the pretence that he is meeting his niece Julia, who happens to be Jerusha's least favorite friend ("When Shall We Meet?"). Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_74

After meeting Jervis, Jerusha is immediately drawn to him: "He's a real human being, not a Pendleton after all ... he looked at me as if he really knew me, almost better than I know myself." Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_75

Despite this, Jerusha becomes more and more curious regarding her old and gray Daddy Long Legs ("The Color of Your Eyes"). Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_76

The summer arrives, and Jerusha begs Daddy Long Legs not to send her back to the John Grier Home, as she has nowhere to go to. Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_77

Jervis, adopting another guise as a "secretary" to Mr. Smith, sends her to Lock Willow Farm, where she explores her talent as a writer. Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_78

Jerusha then proclaims that she finally knows what the secret of happiness is, and that is to live in the now ("The Secret of Happiness"). Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_79

She also stumbles upon a connection between Jervis Pendleton and Lock Willow Farm, yet doesn't connect this information to her Daddy Long Legs. Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_80

Jerusha expresses her longing to finally see her Daddy Long Legs, while Jervis becomes increasingly frustrated on whether he should reveal himself as her benefactor or not, realizing he is falling in love with her ("The Color of Your Eyes (Reprise)"). Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_81

Act Two Daddy Long Legs (musical)_section_9

Upon returning to the college for her sophomore year, Jerusha continues her studies and her writing, as well as become socially involved with the family of her friend Sallie McBride ("Sophomore Year Studies"). Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_82

Jervis, upon reading of Jerusha's attachment to Sallie's attractive brother Jimmy, realizes that he is already falling for her. Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_83

He then invites Jerusha, Julia, and Sallie for a long cultural weekend ("My Manhattan"). Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_84

The summer arrives again, and Jerusha asks for permission to spend her vacation at the McBrides' country home on the Adirondacks. Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_85

Jervis, through his secretarial alias, insists that she spend the summer at Lock Willow Farm instead. Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_86

Feeling alone and trapped, Jerusha writes an angry letter in response to his domineering nature and finds it hard to forgive Mr. Smith ("I Couldn't Know Someone Less"). Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_87

Jervis struggles to finally reveal himself to Jerusha as her Daddy Long Legs and subsequently confess his feelings. Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_88

He thinks that Jerusha will never forgive him if he comes clean regarding his true identity ("The Man I'll Never Be"). Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_89

Jervis visits Jerusha in Lock Willow, the farm where he grew up as a boy. Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_90

The couple enjoy the countryside together and find themselves growing more and more attached to one another ("The Secret of Happiness (Reprise)"). Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_91

Jerusha receives an invitation from Sallie to join her family at Camp McBride, and another from Jervis to meet him at Lock Willow. Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_92

Despite Mr. Smith's warnings, Jerusha proceeds to Camp McBride due to some negative remarks she received from Jervis when he found out she turned down an invitation to Paris from Julia, to work as a teacher in French and algebra to support herself. Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_93

Jervis then contemplates his controlling nature, both as Jervis and as Mr. Smith ("Humble Pie"). Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_94

After four years, Jerusha completes her studies and invites Mr. Smith to her graduation ceremony to finally meet him. Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_95

Jervis does attend the ceremony as Julia's guest, but does not reveal himself to the bitterly disappointed Jerusha ("Graduation Day"). Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_96

Back in his Manhattan study, Jervis reflects on the concept of charity and its effects on both the benefactor and the beneficiary, and how Jerusha became a recurring character in his life ("Charity"). Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_97

In Lock Willow, Jerusha writes to Mr. Smith that she will never think of him again after his no-show at her graduation ceremony ("I Have Torn You From My Heart"). Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_98

After a few months, she writes that her first novel has been accepted by a publisher, and enclosed a check of $1000 as a first installment of her repayment of her college fees. Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_99

She then tells him that she will continue to repay her debt to him, and all future royalties will proceed to the John Grier Home, making her a trustee and therefore, meeting him at last. Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_100

Jervis is overwhelmed by this gesture and overjoyed at her success as a writer ("My Manhattan (Reprise)"). Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_101

Jervis visits Jerusha in Lock Willow to ask her hand in marriage. Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_102

Unable to tell him of her origins, she turns him down, thinking that he and his family might feel indifferent towards her when she does tell him. Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_103

In her final letter, Jerusha declares her love for Jervis, and appeals for a personal meeting with Mr. Smith. Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_104

Jervis, writing as Mr. Smith, agrees to meet her. Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_105

Jerusha finally arrives at their meeting place, and is surprised to see Jervis, whom she initially and skeptically assumes to be Mr. Smith's secretary. Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_106

Jervis finally reveals to her that he is Mr. Smith or Daddy Long Legs. Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_107

Distressed over this revelation, as well as realising that he has read her private letters about him, Jerusha accuses him of playing with her feelings and the mere fact that he didn't even write back over the course of four years, which Jervis acquiesces to ("I'm A Beast (Reprise)"). Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_108

At last, he declares his love for Jerusha, which she reciprocates. Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_109

Jerusha finally understands the grand scheme of things that led her to where she is now ("All This Time"). Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_110

Reviews Daddy Long Legs (musical)_section_13

The show received positive reviews. Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_114

According to the aggregator Show-Score, the show received a score of 81%, combining both scores from professional critics and audience reviews. Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_115

The performers, especially McGinnis, received praise for their performances. Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_116

However, critics are divided on the show itself, most faulting the epistolary approach to the libretto. Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_117

Alexis Soloski, reviewing the Off-Broadway production for The New York Times, found that Gordon's music and lyrics "have a charm and ease, though the songs can blur into one another in ways that are sometimes purposeful and sometimes not" and Caird's book "appealing" and direction "nimble." Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_118

She wrote of McGinnis having a "bright spirit, a mass of curly hair and a dulcet soprano" and of Nolan being "softly debonair" and possesses a "tender tenor that nicely encircles Ms. McGinnis's voice in their duets." Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_119

Steven Suskin, reviewing the Off-Broadway production for The Huffington Post, found that the "letter-by-letter format inevitably leads to too many similar sections," yet found the musical "imaginative" and Caird's two-actor scheme "economical," in contrast with his "ponderously overdone" work for Jane Eyre (another collaboration between him and Gordon). Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_120

He wrote of McGinnis to be charming, despite the "baldly expository opening number ('The Oldest Orphan in the John Grier Home')" and of Nolan to be "sweetly sympathetic here as he was harshly disruptive in Zhivago." Daddy Long Legs (musical)_sentence_121
