Annie The Musical Review

Annie The Musical


Annie the Musical is a brand new set and cast for Miss Hannigan is none other than

Miranda Hart if you have seen her shows you will see her as the gentle giant Miranda that has you crying with laughter.

I’m so curious to see how Miranda can pull a Miss Hannigan, Originally played by Carol Burnett in the 1982 film,

could taking on the drunken character be hard for Miss Hart?

THIS would be a different side to her we haven’t seen thus far.
I’m laughing about her lusting and complete mess ups of her life where everything is ‘such fun’.

Annie The Musical


About Annie

Annie was set in America during the Great Depression in 1930’s in New York,

where an orphanage for girls is the centre of the film, And a little redhead girl called Annie.

Annie’s luck soon changes when she is picked to spend Christmas with the known billionaire, Oliver Warbucks.

As Warbucks and his employees begin to fall in love with the feisty young girl,

Miss Hannigan and her cronies hatch a plan to snatch her away and get some fortune of their own.

Annie is currently playing at the Piccadilly Theatre, built across three levels,

with a capacity that holds just over 1,232 within the auditorium.

Split over the Stalls, Royal Circle and Grand Circle; there is a seat to suit every budget.

I was so lucky to get to sit in perfect seats thank’s to Boxoffice

I was also impressed they do Auditorium where you can order sweets and drinks and get it delivered to your seat.

thumbs up for that one!


Back to Annie, I had Team Rockefeller, with Leading girl Ruby Stokes,

I was blown away by this young lady’s voice and ability to capture Annie,

she transferred that so well to the audience.

Her credibilities of being in the UK tour The Sound of music which I have seen, HERE

I can see this being a top-rated show.

The girls were so good and worked fluidly with each other.

The choreography in Hard Knock life was hard-hitting.

using the metal buckets and scrubbing brushes.

I must have seen the film over a billion times,

This has to be an all-time Favourite movie and seeing it on stage made it even better

Miranda Hart was fantastic AS Miss Hannigan, I was waiting for her to do the normal

‘Miranda, (stop talking face audience and just start talking to the audience.)
I do think if she acted a little drunker she would have been just as good as Carol Burnett.
Daddy Warbucks played by Alex Bourne was spot-on.
All actors were amazing and They’re all so talented!

Creative director Nikolai Foster and the production team brought the show to a whole new level.
The clothing, setting the scene was simply fantastic all the work that goes into the building of the stage,

props the costumes, hair and makeup just amazing work.

It really is a Must see !!



my rating for ANNIE would be 5/5

5 stars

    I’m ashamed to say I’ve never seen Annie but my sister loves it! Sounds like a great show (and wonderful cast – Miranda Hart!) and I’m sure my sister would love it.

  15. 26th June 2017 / 3:33 PM

    This just looks so fab, I am going to try and get some tickets. I love Miranda!

      Seriously was amazing and Matilda!

  16. 26th June 2017 / 3:43 PM

    I’m quite iffy about Miranda Hart in general as she isn’t my cup of tea, but after seeing your 5 star rating I may have to go see for myself.

      I 100% love Miranda Hart there were some funny younger in cheek bits but that’s what made the character x

    Oh wow! I just could not imagine Miranda as Ms Hannigan (that woman terrified me as a child), it’s so nice to hear she’s not just the Miranda we see in her show. I will definitely catch this if it tours. x

  18. 26th June 2017 / 11:14 PM

    I am so glad you enjoyed this – I did think Miranda was a bit of an odd choice but I may have to go see this now!

  19. 26th June 2017 / 11:19 PM

    I absolutely love the film version of Annie, with Carol Burnett, so I would have loved to see the musical.
    The one problem I have is that I just dont like Miranda Hart. So for me I have to give it a miss, which is a shame xx

  20. 26th June 2017 / 11:25 PM

    We loved the classic film Annie, so wouldn’t mind seeing it on stage. We need to make more of an effort to see some shows in 2017!

  21. 27th June 2017 / 6:03 AM

    I absolutely love going to the theatre and watching musicals! Sounds like this was a great one – I love Miranda Hart.

  22. 28th June 2017 / 3:11 AM

    This sounds really a fun and entertaining show to watch. Thank you for that wonderful feedback. I hope I can also see them too.

  23. 2nd July 2017 / 7:26 PM

    Its such a long time since i saw a stage show, really must put that right!

  24. 4th July 2017 / 1:05 PM

    Oh I really want to see this! I love the theatre! I saw Wind in the Willows on opening night last week and it was fab! Will be writing my review in the next few days!

  25. 16th September 2017 / 8:47 AM
