Win tickets to Good Company Players’ new musical production of ‘Daddy Long Legs’
Good Company Players opens a new musical on Thursday, July 15, that you’ve probably never heard of — but it’s gained a loyal following since it played Off-Broadway in 2015. I’m excited to be able to give away two pairs of show-only tickets to one of these three opening-weekend performances: Friday, July 16; Saturday, July 17; or Sunday, July 18.
“Daddy Long Legs” is a two-person musical based on a 1912 novel of the same name by Jean Webster, and is about an academically gifted young woman whose college education is paid for by an anonymous benefactor, whom she names “Daddy Long Legs” because the glimpse she views of his gangly silhouette reminds her of a spider. She writes him a monthly letter about her experiences, and from there a friendship forms.
The GCP production features a powerhouse cast (Meg Clark and Shawn Williams) and director (Laurie Pessano) and a contemporary score by Paul Gordon, who wrote the beautiful music and lyrics for the musical version of “Jane Eyre” (for which he received a Tony nomination for best musical score). This is a chance to experience a small, intimate musical in Fresno just a few years after it wowed New York.
