daddy long legs

Based on a 1912 novel, later developed into a Hollywood film with Fred Astaire, this musical tells the story of an orphan whose education as a writer is paid for by a mysterious benefactor. As part of the deal, she’s required to write to him once a month and nicknames him “Daddy Long Legs”.  I haven’t seen any reviews of this particular production, filmed live at the Smock Alley Theatre, Dublin, in 2018. But the American musical version of Daddy Long Legs was highly praised during a recent lengthy off-Broadway run (see here for details).

8-14 March. Tickets £18 (including booking fee) has many other dramas and musicals. On the musical side, productions range from English shows like  West End Musical Drive In to a Russian musical version of Anna Karenina and a Korean musical version of the King Arthur myth, Xcalibur. See
