Annie To Return To The Great White Way In 2012

No hell has not frozen over folks. It was just announced that everyone's favorite redhead is set to take Broadway by storm once again in 2012. Annie which is set to open in the fall of 2012 in time in honor of it's 35th Anniversary will be revised according to the New York Times. Producing the show is Red producer Arielle Tepper Madover. Here is a statement from the producer. "My grandmother took me to see Annie over the Thanksgiving holiday when I was eight.It was my first Broadway show. From that moment, I knew that I wanted to work in the theatre. The past 30 years have prepared me to produce this show on Broadway and I cannot wait to share it with a new generation of Broadway audiences and with my own children."

The last time Annie was on Broadway was in 1997 starring the late Nell Carter. It was not a success and closed within a few months while the original production ran for almost six years for a total of 2/377 performances. Now while I don't expect this new production to run that long I do think it will do well if they can get the right team together. That means a new director. Yes I'm talking to you Martin Charnin. Oh and please no more stunt casting. That last thing we need is Kathie Me Gifford playing Miss Hannigan again. Let the speculation begin. Until next time theatre fans.
