Biography

Annie is a musical based upon the popular Harold Gray comic strip Little Orphan Annie, with music by Charles Strouse, lyrics by Martin Charnin, and the book by Thomas Meehan. The musical ran for nearly 6 years on Broadway, spawned numerous productions in many countries, as well as national tours, and won the Tony Award for Best Musical. The popular song "Tomorrow" is from this musical.

To break the ice for a request for adoption, Warbucks buys Annie a new heart locket. ("Why Should I Change A Thing?") When the girl approaches hysteria as he attempts to take the old locket off, Warbucks realizes that Annie still wishes to find her parents. He promises Annie that he will find her mother and father ("You Won't Be An Orphan For Long").

During an improvised party celebrating the eve of Annie's adoption ("I Don't Need Anything But You"), Lily and Rooster enter disguised as "Ralph Mudge" and "Shirley Mudge", and claim to be Annie's parents. As the couple has a false birth certificate and the other locket half, Warbucks begrudgingly accepts the two as Annie's parents. Warbucks invites the pair to come pick her up the next day, on Christmas morning.

Warbucks, and surprisingly Annie, are saddened over this turn of events ("Maybe - Reprise"). New news from the F.B.I. is quickly received - Annie's real parents, David and Margaret Bennett, have died. Lily, Rooster, and their accomplice Hannigan are all arrested ("Annie"). All celebrate the adoption of Annie by Warbucks, and the re-uniting of Sandy and Annie ("New Deal for Christmas").

The 4th National Touring Company of Annie opened on September 11, 1981 with Mollie Hall playing Annie. This production was a "bus and truck" tour, with a slightly reduced cast, that traveled the country often playing in two cities a week. This company was still touring when the original Broadway production closed in January 1983, making Kathleen Sisk the final performer to play Annie from the original production team. This final production closed in September of 1983.

The first attempt at a sequel, Annie 2: Miss Hannigan's Revenge, opened at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. in December 1989 to universally disastrous reviews. Extensive reworking of the script and score proved futile, and the project was aborted before reaching Broadway. In 1993, a second attempt (with a completely different plot and score), entitled Annie Warbucks, opened at the off-Broadway Variety Arts Theatre, where it ran for 200 performances.

1Indicates the production made an official cast recording.2In Japan, a special demo recording is made each year with new actrress playing Annie role, containing a set of select songs.

A documentary film, "Life After Tomorrow," was directed and produced by one of the original Broadway and National Tour orphans, Julie Stevens and partner, Gil Cates, Jr. “Life After Tomorrow” reunites more than 40 women who played orphans in the Broadway show “Annie” and reveals the highs and lows of their experiences as child actresses in a cultural phenomenon. The film premiered on Showtime and will be released by Arts Alliance America on DVD in early 2008.
