With equal measures of pluck and positivity, little orphan ANNIE charms everyone's hearts, despite a next-to-nothing start in 1930s New York City. And now, alongside her signature pal dog, Sandy, she's set her sights on making us grin from ear to ear as she inspires a whole new millennium. Winner of 7 Tony Awards® including Best Musical, ANNIE - with Music by Charles Strouse, Lyrics by Martin Charnin, and Book by Thomas Meehan - makes its triumphant return to Broadway in a brand new production from Tony, Drama Desk and Pulitzer Prize-winning Director James Lapine and an A-list creative team. « less

We had to best time, the music was fantastic, the actors were spot on. I don't think there is a bad seat in the house. You will laugh and you will cry. A must see on Broadway!

I never had the privileged of experiencing the other productions of Annie. But I definitely loved this one. My husband was worried he wouldn't like it but he also loved it. I notice that one reviewer was disappointed and called it childish. I'm not sure what this person expected, adult orphans or little girls that portrayed the maturity of twenty... More

Although I have read a few tepid reviews from the critics (and I can agree somewhat with some of their criticisms), my 12 year old daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed this show! I saw it with my dad in the 70s during its Tony-winning run, and I was enchanted then. I was hoping my daughter would love it as much... More

The latest revival of ANNIE, at the Palace Theatre, is wonderful. The orphans steal the show and will steal your heart. Lilla Crawford is a superb Annie. Katie Finneran as Miss Hannigan is a villain you will love to hate. Anthony Warlow as Daddy Warbucks, Brynn O'marlley as Grace Farrell and the rest of the cast are excellent in their... More

This is a great show for families and kids. We attended a Saturday night performance with friends who had 6 and 11 year-old daughters. Both were thrilled with the show and the adults were quite pleased. The kids' interest never flagged and they are apparently still singing "It's the Hard Knock Life" around their home days after they saw the... More

Our last night in New York was spent at the Palace Theatre watching Annie. I am not a great lover of musicals but have to say the show was superb. Lilla Crawford who plays Annie was outstanding as were all the cast - including the dog. Staging and scenery were good as were our front balcony seats.

I took my 12 year old granddaughter to see Annie; this was the second time she was seeing it, the first time she was only 5 years old. This is a must to see for the young and old. I will definitely recommend it to my friends. Excellent way to spend the holidays.

We went to see the latest version of the musical Annie on Saturday night. We had seen the original show which was excellent and this show lives up to the original. The new Annie has a great voice. The show is 2 1/2 hours long including an intermission. Truly a great show for young and old!
