Leaping Lizards, Annie's Back!
Based on the Little Orphan Annie comic strip, the iconic story about a courageous little girl with hair that matches her fiery attitude has enjoyed numerous revivals in film and stage format over the years. The 1977 Tony-winning vintage musical is set to make a triumphant return to the glamorous Hollywood Bowl stage as the star annual production of the LA Philharmonic's 97th summer season at the historic venue.
Helmed by Tony nominated stage director Michael Arden, the heart-warming tale features an iconic score by Charles Strouse and Martin Charnin, one that lives on in musical theatre history through classic songs Hard Knock Life and Tomorrow. Set in the 1930s, Annie is a feisty young orphan who uses her wits to survive in the miserable orphanage run by the villainous Miss Hannigan. When she is chosen to spend a Christmas at wealthy industrialist Oliver Warbuck's mansion, a life-changing adventure ensues.
