Ageless ‘Annie’ Delights Broadway
9 / 10

In the extraordinarily entertaining revival of “Annie” that has now opened on Broadway, Daddy Warbucks (the gruffly charming Australian star Anthony Warlow) has met his match.

James Lapine, Alchemist
10 / 10

This revival of "Annie" is fabulous. Creatively staged by James Lapine, Stephen Sondheim's longtime collaborator, and smartly cast from top to bottom, it makes a convincing case for a musical widely regarded by cynical adults as suitable only for consumption by the very, very young. Even if you're a child-hating curmudgeon, you'll come home grinning in spite of yourself.

The story of the Bacchae by Euripides has always been incredibly fascinating - how economically and devastatingly it tells the truth - and right now, it feels like we need this tale of opposing societal/psychic forces more than ever.
