"Hart brings an eccentric air of baffled but winning charm to the role of Miss Hannigan." The Stage
The world’s family favourite Annie the musical opened to rave reviews at London’s Piccadilly Theatre. With its Tony® award-winning book and score, including the unforgettable Annie songs It’s The Hard-Knock Life, Easy Street and Tomorrow, this is a show not to be missed.
Set in 1930s New York during The Great Depression, the Annie story concerns a brave young girl forced to live a life of misery at Miss Hannigan’s orphanage. Her luck soon changes when she's chosen to spend a fairytale Christmas with famous billionaire, Oliver Warbucks. Meanwhile, spiteful Miss Hannigan has other ideas and hatches a plan to spoil Annie’s search for her true family…
Based on the popular Harold Gray comic strip Little Orphan Annie from the 1930s, the original show was a huge hit on Broadway when it opened in 1977. It spawned numerous productions in many countries, as well as national tours, and won the Tony Award for Best Musical. The first film adaptation was released in 1982, starring Albert Finney as Daddy Warbucks, and Carol Burnett as Miss Hannigan. The Annie 2014 film received two Golden Globe Award nominations, one for Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical (for Wallis) and another for Best Original Song.
The Annie cast includes the comedy superstar Miranda Hart, who is described in Annie reviews as 'a triumph' (Daily Telegraph) as the tyrannical Miss Hannigan in this 'glorious revival'’ (Times).
The total Annie running time is approximately 2 hours 20 minutes, including an interval. For the complete Annie seating plan, please see the official website.
