Overview

Legendary musical Annie returns to the West End for a limited run at the Piccadilly Theatre starring actress Meera Syal. Annie began performances on 23rd May 2017 and continues until February 2018.

Set in New York during the Great Depression, the gutsy young Annie is destined for a life of misery living in the Municipal Girls Orphanage under the torment of the often rather inebriated Miss Hannigan.

With nothing but an old letter from her real parents and the hope that she will one day see them again, Annie is determined to escape. Her luck changes, however, when she is picked to spend Christmas at the home of the well-known billionaire Oliver Warbucks. All that stands in her way though is the spiteful Miss Hannigan’s plans to spoil everything for her.

Packed full of a huge range of well loved songs, the award winning score includes the unforgettable songs of "It’s a Hard Knock Life", "I Don’t Need Anything But You", "Easy Street" and "Tomorrow".

Annie stars actress Meera Syal (Romeo and Juliet at the Garrick Theatre). Alex Bourne (Mamma Mia!) co-stars as Daddy Warbucks. They are joined by Holly Dale Spencer (Sweet Charity) as Grace Farrell, Jonny Fines (Grease) as Rooster and Djalenga Scott (Grease) as Lily.

Annie is directed Nikolai Foster, the Artistic Director of Leicester Curve, which is one of the UK’s most exciting regional theatres, having produced acclaimed productions such as White Christmas, The Hired Man and Beautiful Thing. Set and costume design is by Colin Richmond, with choreography by Nick Winston, lighting by Ben Cracknell and sound design by Richard Brooker.

Annie first premiered on Broadway in 1977, originally based on the Harold Gray comic Little Orphan Annie and was adapted with music by Charles Strouse, lyrics by Martin Charnin and book by Thomas Meehan. The original run spanned nearly six years and since has been performed all around the world, including major West End productions in 1978, 1983 and 1998, as well as being turned into two major Hollywood films.

With a star cast, the return of Annie to the West End is set to be one of the most exciting revivals of the year. Performances began on 23rd May 2017 and will continue until 6th January 2018.

I had forgotten the whole story of Annie and so there were some plot twists and exciting scenes that really kept me intrigued in the story line. The children were amazing singers/dancers/actors and should be really proud of themselves for how hard they have worked. Miranda Hart captured the entire audience's attention and it was nice to see her own sense of humor/personality coming through her character (Miss Hannigan). The set was very creative as it had snippets of NYC maps in the background with Annie's doodles scribbled over it. Before the show began, the children and their beds at the orphan were on display and they were walking around in character which created more excitement in the audience prior to the show beginning.

I was going in expecting to be cringing through the whole thing but I'm happy to say that it was not the case at all and it is a brilliant production. Nikolai Foster's production of Annie is the best I've seen as it focuses on how badly New Yorkers were being treated by the government and for the first time of seeing Annie I felt most sympathy towards Mr Warbucks because of both Foster's direction and Alex Bourne's stellar performance. The set was absolutely brilliant however I found the whole Jigsaw puzzle theme a bit too similar to Matilda's set. The choreography was amazing and the children are immaculate. The ensemble is on fire and while she didn't really compare to Carol Burnett or Sheila Hancock I was really impressed in Miranda Hart's performance as well as being funny she could sing and dance capably next to the astonishing Jonny Fines as Rooster.

This is my second time seeing this show and i still am amazed at how brilliant the dancers and actors are!!! The adults are spectacular and the kids have so much talent it's unreal. Craig Revel Horwood was in this show and he was BRILLIANT. As soon as he started dancing the smile on his face grew!! Would highly recommend this show to anyone old or young. It is well worth the money.

Loved the show! Miranda Hart was Miss Hannigan, and she was great!! Her acting was phenomenal and her dancing and singing is definitely not something to overlook! Alex Bourne as daddy Warbucks was, yet again, amazing, his voice soars across the theatre. The orphans were great, they made the show with their spicy attitude and sharp moves, especially Charlotte Ross-Gower who had an amazing stage presence. Ruby Stokes was on as Annie and she was amazing!! Slightly nervous towards the very start, however as soon as she got into 'Maybe' she relaxed and was incredible! Her acting was soft and I have nothing to fault her on!! The ensemble as a whole were phenomenal, adding laughter and enthusiasm to the show.

The cast were great (including the dog which was a bit of a scene stealer) and the set was relatively simple but very effective, enhanced by good lighting. The plot is fairly obvious, even if you haven't seen the film or show before, and there are not a huge number of different songs, but I thoroughly enjoyed the show.

‘Annie’ was an enjoyable way to spend a couple of hours in the theatre. The real stars of the show are the children in the orphanage and particularly the young actress who played ‘Annie’. She will be a big West End star in the future. The main draw here was of course Miranda Hart and I found her very entertaining. Ok, so she can’t really sing or dance but I think she was aware of that and almost played up to that fact. She was of course very funny as Miss Hannigan and the audience seemed to love her when she came on stage. The set design was very good too. Overall, it was an enjoyable evening.

Although not in any way revolutionary, this is a strong revival, perfect for those who love the classic film or for families who want to experience it together for the first time. Miranda Hart acts as the star draw and does well in the role, fantastically putting the awkward physical comedy into the role that she’s known for, while Alex Bourne does a great job as Daddy Warbucks. The cheesy style of the original film is still very much there and can be a bit over the top and grating after a while, while the plot does very little as far as developing any real emotion. Great for those who think they’d love it, but if you don’t think Annie is for you, then your instinct is probably correct.

Annie will always be one of my classics. there were some things that didn't work out for me personally (too thick accents, some of the orphans were impossible to understand, a man as Hannigan doesn't work for me) but overall the cast here does a solid job and it's a very entertaining thing to watch.

I thought this production was absolutely magical - a real antidote to the current climate. It's packed full of joy and a message of hope and optimism that I think we could all do with. There's an excellent score, and the choreography in particular really does the show justice. Miranda Hart is good, but the children are definitely the stand-out performers! Would absolutely recommend to anyone for a really lovely night out. (Was also brilliant to see so many children in the theatre!)
