Nominated for a Tony Award for BEST REVIVAL OF A MUSICAL, our production had over two dozen weeks grossing over $1 million each week, and even included a stint of Glee’s Jane Lynch stepping into the role of Miss Hannigan.

Based on the “Little Orphan Annie” comic strip which debuted in 1924 and ran for over 80 years, Annie is set in Depression Era New York City at a time when the economy looked bleak, government seemed ineffective and the average citizen was desperate and frustrated. Sound familiar? With its hopeful message and unwavering belief in a better tomorrow, Annie became one of the biggest Broadway musical hits of the 1970s, running for almost six years and playing 2,377 performances. The musical won seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Book (Thomas Meehan) and Best Score (Charles Strouse, Martin Charnin), the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Musical, seven Drama Desk Awards including Best Musical, and the Grammy for Best Cast Show Album.

Beyond the inspiring story, Annie‘s return to Broadway also offered a unique opportunity to deliver a message of change and hope into our lives. Drawing on lessons learned from their leading lady, the Annie team of producers and artists recognized the importance of giving back and committed to undertake fundraising and volunteer efforts that benefitted children and dogs through local and national charities and social service organizations.
