"Daddy Long Legs," the new chamber musical by John Caird and Paul Gordon, has two things going for it: a completely winning performance by Megan McGinnis and the kind of rags-to-riches Cinderella saga that never fails to draw in the matinee crowd. Other than that, it's pretty much your standard sentimental melodrama, with an easy-listening score that could make Andrew Lloyd Webber seem like Bach. The production, which had its world premiere Saturday at Rubicon Theatre Company in Ventura under Caird's cozy direction, is based on Jean Webster's 1912 novel, which has given rise to numerous stage and screen dramatizations.
