Annie | Memorial Auditorium | Stage | Indy Week
This is a past event.
When: July 24-Aug. 1 2010
Price: $24-$76
Little Orphan Annie has been entertaining audiences since 1924, when Harold Gray began what would become a rather right-wing, anti-New Deal newspaper comic. Few people remember the comic strip today, but it was the Broadway musical of 1977, including a song penned by Martin Charnin and Charles Strouse (call it the anti-"Yesterday"), that cemented its enduring place in the summer musical repertoire. Now the North Carolina Theatre's rendition hits the Progress Energy Center stage. You may be thinking, "Oh no, not another performance of anti-'Yesterday,'" but N.C. Theatre is pulling out the stops on this one, bringing in Andrea McArdle, who originated Annie in 1977, as Miss Hannigan. We'll see if NCT succeeds in putting a fresh perspective on a beloved classic. Performances continue through Aug. 1. —Belem Destefani
