BWW Review: ANNIE Brings Her Smile To The National Theatre
by Ellen Burns - Mar 17, 2016

There's an impressive Beowulf Boritt set that makes good use of the height of the National's stage, and frequent set changes, refreshing for a touring production (which are often more spare for logistical reasons). And it's always a treat to have a live orchestra, a true overture and Act II musical introduction, and a troupe of excellent voices. (more...)
