Based on the Harold Gray comic strip, titled Little Orphan Annie, the Broadway musical Annie tells the story of a precocious orphan who never gives up hope as she seeks a better life despite the nefarious deeds of the staff at her orphanage. With musical scores by Charles Strouse and lyrics by Martin Charnin, the show boasts memorable songs such as "It's a Hard-Knock Life" and "Tomorrow."
Annie occupies a spot among the most popular Broadway musicals ever produced. Following its non-New York opening at the Goodspeed Opera House of East Haddam, CT, it ran for six years at the Alvin Theater, from '77 to '83, winning a Tony Award in '97.
Annie, the musical, is a delightful theatrical performance that is sure to entertain the whole family with its optimistic message and catchy soundtrack.
