Leapin' Lizards,
”Annie” Returns March 25 - 30

“Annie,” arguably one of America’s most beloved musicals, returns to Boston’s Citi Wang Theatre for a one-week engagement March 25 - 30, 2008. Featuring Amanda Balon (below) as the world's most popular orphan, this marks the 30th anniversary tour of the show's original staging.

With music by Charles Strouse and book by Thomas Meehan, “Annie” is again directed by its lyricist, Martin Charnin, who brought the original production of “Annie” to Broadway in 1977. Tony Award winning set designer Ming Cho Lee has created a fresh look for this new production.

The original Broadway production of “Annie” won seven 1977 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Book and Score. It ran for 2,377 performances and has subsequently been produced all over the world. The original production is also one of the top 20 longest running shows in Broadway history.

The show’s memorable score includes “It’s the Hard-Knock Life,” “Easy Street,” “N.Y.C,” “You’re Never Fully Dressed Without A Smile” and the ever optimistic “Tomorrow.”

In addition to the work of Charnin, Meehan, Strouse and Lee, “Annie” features original Broadway musical staging by Peter Gennaro, choreography by Liza Gennaro, lighting design by Ken Billington, costume design by Theoni Aldridge and sound design by Peter Hylenski.
