DADDY LONG LEGS is a two person, chamber musical based on a 1912 novel of written correspondence, utilizing a three-piece band consisting of keyboard, guitar and cello. If you haven’t already run screaming from the room, then this charming jewel box of a musical is for you. Written and directed by the inimitable John Caird with music by Paul Gordon (the team behind JANE EYRE), the show has little relation to the Leslie Caron/Fred Astaire movie and there is no dancing at all, what it does have is beautiful singing, a talented cast, lovely costumes and some insightful writing with a predictable romantic ending. In the tiny Davenport Theatre, every seat is excellent.  This is a refined evening of entertainment, but not everyone’s cup of sweet jasmine tea.
