FEATURED REVIEWS FOR Annie

For ‘Annie’ actress on Broadway, the sun has come out
7 / 10

“Annie,” the 1977 musical based on the 1920s “Little Orphan Annie” comic strip, returns to Broadway as if shipped to the Palace Theatre by a morale-boosting arm of FEMA. Infused with zip and charm by its sensational Annie, Noo-Yawk-tawkin’ Lilla Crawford, the show, slickly staged by James Lapine, tells you that any city or nation keeping faith with the future will rise again, come hell or high water...Coaxed by Lapine...Crawford exudes the beguiling clarity of a kid unbowed by the hard-knock life. Her Annie is as egalitarian as we’d like to believe our country, at its best, might be...Matching Crawford vowel for lazy New York vowel, the Australian Warlow proves to be an ideal Warbucks, the warmth of the performance rising scene by scene.

Theater Review: 'Annie'
4 / 10

'Annie,' one of the most heartwarming and beloved musicals of all time, has been all but butchered by James Lapine - a playwright-director best known for his original and edgy collaborations with Stephen Sondheim and William Finn - in his charmless and misconceived new Broadway revival. Lapine is hardly a bad director. Rather, the co-creative force behind such musicals as 'Sunday in the Park with George' and 'Falsettos' is simply the wrong choice for 'Annie.'...In the title role, Lilla Crawford, 11, has a strong presence, but lacks vulnerability and is strangely encouraged to use a thick Brooklyn accent and far too much vibrato...Two-time Tony winner Katie Finneran, who recently made a splash in 'Promises, Promises,' delivers a surprisingly hollow performance as Miss Hannigan, consisting entirely of shtick. Anthony Warlow, an unknown Australian actor, is especially convincing as industrialist turned father 'Daddy' Warbucks.
