Main Stage

Daddy Long Legs

From the Tony Award-winning director of Les Misérables comes the intimate new musical Daddy Long Legs. Based on the classic novel – a beloved story 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 calling it “an exquisite gem of a musical,” and “one of the most enthralling, entertaining and moving love stories on the American musical theater stage.” And now, for a limited time only, Daddy Long Legs has finally come home to New York.

Black Box

Story Pirates

Our shows feature stories written by kids, performed by some of the best improvisers and musicians in New York. To best serve our young authors, we recruit top talent from comedy hubs such as Upright Citizens Brigade, Second City, the Groundlings, and more. These incredible performers faithfully bring to life the unfiltered world of kids’ imaginations. When the curtain rises, cats can fly; hot dogs save the world; fried foods battle dairy foods; and the characters you’re likely to meet are Captain Waffles, Moneyhead Alan, or Snufflepants.
