Inspired by Harold Gray’s early 20th century comic strip – which was itself inspired by James Whitcomb Riley’s ultra-creepy poem “Little Orphant Annie” – this blockbuster hit opened in 1977 and raked in Tony awards. It then spawned a hit 1982 movie and musical numbers such as “Tomorrow” and “Hard Knock Life” that went straight into the American musical canon.
As you might expect from a musical about an orphanage, the stage is loaded with young talent for this production. Director Danny Mollise’s work is sure to have attendees not just entertained but humming the numbers to themselves in the weeks that follow.
Friday and Saturday curtain rises at 7:30 p.m.. Sunday matinees are at 2:30 p.m.
