‚Äč

Leapin' Lizards! Broadway In Chicago is thrilled to present ANNIE, America's most beloved musical. Celebrating its 30th anniversary tour, ANNIE is giving a new generation the opportunity to experience this classic musical about never giving up hope. ANNIE will play Chicago's Auditorium Theatre of Roosevelt University (50 E. Congress Pkwy.) for a one week engagement January 19 to 24, 2010.

ANNIE, with music by Charles Strouse and book by Thomas Meehan, is again directed by its lyricist, Martin Charnin, who brought the original production of ANNIE to Broadway in 1977. Tony Award winning set designer, Ming Cho Lee, has created a fresh look for this new production.

The original Broadway production of ANNIE won seven 1977 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Book and Score. It ran for 2,377 performances, and has subsequently been produced all over the world. The original production is one of the top 20 longest running shows in Broadway history, and ANNIE continues to be one of the most successful musicals ever.

Boasting one of Broadway's most memorable scores, including "It's the Hard-Knock Life," "Easy Street," "N.Y.C." and the ever optimistic "Tomorrow," you can bet your bottom dollar that ANNIE will bring a smile to your face.

In addition to Charnin, Meehan, Strouse and Lee, ANNIE's creative team includes original Broadway musical staging by Peter Gennaro, choreography by Liza Gennaro, lighting design by Ken Billington, costume design by Theoni Aldridge and sound design by Peter Hylenski. ANNIE is being produced by NETworks Presentations, LLC.
