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 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
Annie is being shown at the Piccadilly Theatre from June 5th, 2017
and will play until January 6th, 2018!
Show running time is 2 hours 20 minutes,
