Proclaimed "one of the best musicals ever" by the Chicago Tribune, the 30th Anniversary Tour of ANNIE is presented by the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami Dade-County, RRA Broadway Across America - Miami and Florida Theatrical Association.
"As engaging as ever "(Chicago Sun-Times,) 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.
You can bet your bottom dollar that ANNIE will likely bring a smile to your face with songs including "It's the Hard-Knock Life," "Easy Street," "N.Y.C." and the ever optimistic "Tomorrow." In addition to Charnin, Meehan, Strouse and Lee, ANNIE's creative team includes the 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. For more information, visit www.annieontour.com.
