Daddy Long Legs
Music and Lyrics by Paul Gordon, Book by John Caird

From the Tony®-Award winning director of Les Misérables comes the intimate new musical Daddy Long Legs. Based on the classic novel which inspired the 1955 movie starring Fred Astaire—a beloved tale in the spirit of Jane Austen, the Brontë Sisters, and “Downton Abbey”—this heartwarming Cinderella story about a witty and winsome young woman and her mysterious benefactor has charmed audiences of all ages from Los Angeles to London. Critics are cheering: Daddy Long Legs “echoes of She Loves Me and top-notch performances” and “is one of the most enthralling, entertaining and moving love stories on the American musical theater stage.”

SHOUT!  The Mod Musical
by Philip George and David Lowenstein

A Swinging 60's Sensation

Since SHOUT! shook its way into the New York Musical Theatre Festival, the musical celebration of the 60's has become a true international smash hit, entertaining audiences the world over with the infectious and soulful pop anthems and ballards that helped grow the female empowerment movement.    Following its popular New York run, the five fabulously mod girls of SHOUT! packed up their polyester miniskirts and knee-high white boots and hit the road for a triumphant international tour, wowing audiences from Ft. Lauderdale to Chicago to Hawaii.  Thousands of miles, gallons of hairspray and countless renditions of "Son of a Preacher Man" later, SHOUT! is still going strong, certain to keep delighting audiences, with its dynamic blend of classic tunes, tongue-in-cheek wit and female empowerment, for years to come -- an undeniable success story.
