ANNIE is a Broadway musical based upon the popular Harold Gray 1920'S comic strip "Little Orphan Annie," with music by Charles Strouse, lyrics by Martin Charnin, and book by Thomas Meehan. It's the extraordinary story of a spunky little orphan embarking on a child Odyssey-like quest for her missing parents.
Turned down 23 times by producers, ANNIE finally took root and opened in 1977, running for nearly six years. To date, ANNIE has been translated into 28 languages and performed in 34 different countries, as well as numerous national tours here in the States. Besides spawning one of the most sung classic Broadway songs in history ("Tomorrow"), ANNIE won seven of ten Tony Awards nominations, including BEST musical.
