ANNIE BROADWAY REVIEWS
Opening Night: November 8, 2012
Synopsis: LEAPIN' LIZARDS! It's an all-new production of one of the most acclaimed musicals of the past 35 years! With equal measures of pluck and positivity, little orphan Annie charms everyone's hearts, despite a next-to-nothing start in 1930s New York City. And now, alongside her signature pal dog, Sandy, she's set her sights on making us grin from ear to ear as she inspires a whole new millennium.
NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW:
"“Awww.” That’s the sound that emerges from the throats of hundreds when an actress named Sunny first walks across the stage of the Palace Theater. Broadway has long been familiar with the phenomenon of entrance applause, but the entrance “awww” is rare."
"Could the timing be any better for a Broadway revival of Annie? The uplifting musical sells not only the archetypal rags-to-riches fantasy but promotes belief in the power of government to deliver us from economic hardship. At a time when many New Yorkers are still reclaiming their homes in the wake of last week’s Atlantic superstorm, the show’s depiction of the city as a bastion of resilience, even amid Depression-era woes, carries special resonance. Throw in an adorable mutt named Sandy, of all things, and you have a handy remedy for both election fatigue and hurricane hangover."
"When a little orphan hit machine named "Annie" opened in 1977, Americans living in shacks seemed positively Dickensian. Nobody had said anything about federal works projects for decades, much less offered a big wet kiss for the New Deal and sang about it in a sunny musical comedy."
"When the feisty little girl with the curly red hair fills her lungs to belt out the tune about the sun coming out tomorrow, the tingle one experiences starts at the bottom of the spine and wends its way inexorably toward the tear ducts. How did she know, the audience wonders, that at this particular moment in time, these were the lyrics people in the Northeast most needed to hear?"
