“One of the best family musicals ever penned” — Chicago Tribune

“The ultimate feel-good musical!” — Time Magazine

“ANNIE delivers a tingle that starts at the spine and winds its way toward the tear ducts.” — The Washington Post

“Meehan’s book is funny and touching. Songs by Strouse and Charnin offer wall-to-wall ear-ticklers.” — NY Daily News

“A justly beloved musical. . . A fantastic score. . . A masterpiece of storytelling.” — The Chicago Tribune

ANNIE is coming to the Long Center just in time to raise your holiday spirits! “The sun will come out tomorrow! Bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow, there’ll be sun!” With that anthem of optimism, Little Orphan Annie lifts the spirits of an America trapped in throes of the Great Depression and moves them forward with renewed enthusiasm into the future. No wonder ANNIE is one of the best-loved Broadway musicals of all time! Based on the classic comic Little Orphan Annie by Harold Gray, ANNIE is a Broadway classic. With music and lyrics by Tony Award®-winners Martin Charnin, Charles Strouse and Thomas Meehan—and with Charnin re-creating his original stage direction.

Get ready to experience that memorable score, including “It’s the Hard Knock Life,” “Easy Street,” and “I Don’t Need Anything But You.” ANNIE will put a lift in your step, a smile on your face and joy in your heart. ANNIE is the perfect event for the whole family this Thanksgiving Day weekend. Leapin’ Lizards!
