    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 bought these seats because they were in the cheapest price bracket which was very suitable for me as I’m a student. You get what you pay for, so you are further away from the stage but by no means do you miss out on any important details. Characters’ facial expressions were still recognisable and speech/song can be heard clearly. There was only one second when the main character stood on the edge of the stage that I had to lean forward a bit to see. Vertigo sufferers may not appreciate the steepness of the seating, but I think it’s an advantage as your view is not blocked by anyone sitting in front of you. However, because the rows are so steep, your feet are at the same position of the person’s head in front of you and I accidentally nudged them when crossing my legs during the show! Even though I’m only 4ft11, I still found the legroom slightly limited – the attached photo shows this - but I would say this is the only disadvantage! Overall, a comfortable seat, great view and a fantastic show! (Only photo I could take as there were no stage curtains present).

    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.

    We daysat for the tickets that morning and with a theatre token the seat was only £15 so it was a bargain however it took me quite a while to warm to the view as it was so far to the side it was almost restricted but by the end of act one I grew to like it as you could actually see everything and it was a good distance from the stage (close enough to see everyone's faces clearly but not too close) the only trouble with the view is the angle as sometimes you'd miss stuff out but it doesn't change the joy of the experience. The legroom is fantastic as there is no seat in front of you so there is a huge amount of legroom. The seats are designed to be comfortable, if you've ever been to Theatre Royal Drury Lane they're the same design, so it was a comfortable experience.

    An enjoyable show. The actress playing Annie had an excellent singing voice and was a strong actress. The sets were good and there was a strong ensemble cast. Despite Craig Revel Horwood not being the strongest actor, he certainly made up for it with a surprisingly strong singing voice and excellent dance skills (which were to be expected). A fun night out with songs that most of the audience knew.

    Comfortable seat with a great view of the stage. Don't think I've ever so much leg room in the west end - great seat!

    I enjoyed the show as the kids are brilliant. Miranda was also good in the role as Miss Hannigan even though she was recovering from a throat infection. I just think the show misses the 'wow' factor - the set is quite simple for a West end show. The famous songs stick in your mind but the lesser known ones, not so much. Still enjoyed it though.
    Sat in Stalls O13
    Can't fault the view - I'm not too tall but had a great view from this part of the stalls - right in the middle. As I'm only short, I had plenty of legroom. Great that you can order drinks to be brought to your seat!

ANNIE SEATING PLAN
Seats in the Stalls at the Piccadilly Theatre are generally comfortable with good legroom and clear sight-lines, although seats at the end of rows or the very rear can be slightly side on or restricted by an overhang from the Royal Circle.

The Royal Circle also offers good views, however a safety rail can affect rows A-C, so generally sitting higher than this is preferable, with Row E often giving good value for money. The Grand Circle is generally unrestricted however is quite high and with a steep rake, similarly having a safety rail restricting the first couple of rows.

STORY
Legendary musical Annie returns to the West End for a limited run at the Piccadilly Theatre starring national treasure Craig Revel Horwood. 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 theatre director, choreographer and Strictly Come Dancing judge Craig Revel Horwood as Miss Hannigan for a strictly limited 10-week season. 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.
SUITABLE FOR
Annie is perfect for anyone who has seen the classic 1982 but has yet to experience the full magic of the unforgettable musical live on the west end stage. With Craig Revel Horwood appearing on stage once more, it's also a great opportunity to see the Strictly judge in action!
