Show of the Day: Annie (1977)
Annie is an original story based on the popular newspaper comic strip “Little Orphan Annie”. Set during the Depression in New York City, the story centers on a young orphan who encounters a miraculous parent-figure in the billionaire Oliver Warbucks, who in turn becomes very fond of her and wishes to adopt her. To achieve their happiness, they must overcome the plot laid out by the evil Miss Hannigan who runs the orphanage where Annie has been living. The show is about courage and optimism in the face of hard times and audiences loved it so much that it became the third longest-running musical of the 1970’s, and garnered seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical. Music by Charles Strouse, lyrics by Martin Charnin.
