Hit or Miss

Disney’s ANNIE is a winner!

Even though I’m a fan of the musical theatre, I’m embarrassed when I admit I’m a fan of Annie. Years ago I played President Roosevelt in a local production, so I have a certain fondness for the score. The new Disney version which premiered tonight was a vast improvement over the lackluster 1982 bigscreen version. Sure, cut to 90 minutes it felt like the Cliff Notes of the show, but most of the great songs were included. While I missed the 70’s orchestrations of the original production, this version had a wonderfully lush, full sound. And can Audra McDonald do no wrong? The part of Warbuck’s secretary has never been sung so well! Sure, there were some slow spots – but all in all the show was a joy!
