The Broadway Annie musical made the leap from a Harold Gray comic strip titled "Little Orphan Annie" to a huge successful stage production in 1977. The original debut simply followed the basics of the cartoon, added some thoughtful tunes and won the hearts of audiences. The 2012 35th anniversary production aims to make some changes. The latest endeavor is reworked to add realism, stripping away the cartoon aspects and try to appeal more to adults while not losing what children love for the story.
The original 1977 Broadway premiere of Annie was a huge commercial success. The musical ran for six years at the Alvin Theatre (now the Neil Simon Theatre). "Annie" would set the record for the longest-running show at the venue, a total of 2,377 performances before a final curtain on January 2, 1983. In 1977, the show starred Andrea McArdle as Annie, Reid Shelton as Daddy Warbucks, Dorothy Loudon as Miss Hannigan. The production included music by Charles Strouse, lyrics by Martin Charnin, and the book by Thomas Meehan. The original production not only had commercial success but was nominated for eleven Tony Awards and won for Best Musical. Annie would go on to be produced for national touring companies, London West End production and a 1997 20th Anniversary Broadway revival.
The 2012 revival will include all the memorable songs, which have won over audiences over the years. Songs such as "Tomorrow" and "It's the Hard-Knock Life" are sure to find new fans and revive the memories of adults. James Lapine will be directing the revised work of Thomas Meehan with a cast, including Lilla Crawford stars as Annie with Katie Finneran as Miss Hannigan, with Anthony Warlow playing "Daddy" Warbucks. Reviews for the 35th anniversary revival have been mixed by top New York critics. The musical is sure to find an audience and entertain family's night after night in the theatre.
