Hill House on Summit Avenue. “Daddy Long Legs” features music and lyrics by Paul Gordon and a book by John Caird (both nominated for Tony Awards in 2001 for their work on “Jane Eyre”) and is based on the 1912 novel by Jean Webster. This charming two person chamber musical follows Jerusha Abbott, who has grown up in an orphanage but is sent to college by a mysterious benefactor so she may learn to be a writer. Along the way, she emerges as a fiercely independent, intelligent “New Woman.” Amanda Weis, who last worked with MMT as Music Director for the smash hit “High Fidelity” at The Electric Fetus in 2018 will be directing the production. The James J. Hill House will provide the perfect, period-appropriate, intimate setting for this unique turn-of-the-century love story. Tickets on sale now at aboutmmt.org.   CAST Maddie J.
