About the show

Original lyricist and director Martin Charnin directs this brand new incarnation of the iconic musical about an orphan and her search to find her parents, featuring famous songs such as "It's a Hard Knock Life." More…

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. She is determined to find her parents, who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of an orphanage run by the cruel Miss Hannigan. With the help of the other girls in the orphanage, Annie escapes to the wondrous and magical world of New York. This classic story will be presented at Brooklyn's newest performing arts venue, King's Theatre.

"This touring production is perfectly fine, albeit not quite as visually stunning as the 2012 revival. A 25-member company does what’s necessary to squeeze this schmaltzily endearing show for all its worth. Lynn Andrews’s Miss Hannigan, the...mean-spirited orphanage head, steals the spotlight. An...
