Annie

"ANNIE delivers a tingle that starts at the spine and winds its way toward the tear ducts. Infused with zip and charm, this ANNIE tells you that any city or nation keeping faith with the future will rise again, come hell or high water."

"Fabulous and smartly cast from top to bottom. Anthony Warlow sings with bewitching finesse - he is destined for Broadway stardom. ANNIE IS DELIGHTFUL!"

"Recharges Broadway like a copper-topped battery of hope."

"James Lapine's handsome yet lovable vision finds the emotional core without losing the magic. Fear not: When the mean Miss Hannigan swoops down on the girls in the city orphanage to infamously ask, 'Did I hear happiness in here?' The answer is still yes, definitely yes!"

"The gleamingly confident Lilla Crawford, who is possessed of both a gold glow and a voice of brass, is pretty close to perfect as Annie."

Annie Art Cropped

The sun shone during Annie’s esteemed run at the Palace Theatre. The eternally optimistic orphan made a glorious comeback in a world-class, Tony-nominated revival. The original production, which opened April 21, 1977 at the Alvin Theater, was based on the beloved newspaper comic strip “Little Orphan Annie,” and won 7 Tony Awards® including Best Musical. In honor of Annie’s faithful pup Sandy, the revival’s landmark partnership with Pedigree raised more than $1 million to help pets in need.

SMP’S Favorite Moment

The littlest orphan, Molly, sleeping in the drawer; the ensemble; the chills we all felt in the audience after Hurricane Sandy when Annie sang “Tomorrow…”
