Soaring & Romantic! The Daddy Long Legs Album Is Just So ...

Sh-K-Boom recently released the wonderful cast recording of the off-Broadway gem Daddy Long Legs with original cast members Megan McGinnis and Paul Alexander Nolan (Nolan has since been replaced by McGinnis' real-life hubby Adam Halpin). The album, like the show is so special, sweeping, and romantic. Below, BroadwayBox reacts in animated GIF as we give Daddy Long Legs a first-listen.
