    ‘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.
    This seat is in the second to back row of the Upper Circle and you are VERY high up in this theatre. I wouldn’t recommend this seat for anyone who suffers from vertigo. It’s the seat on the end of the row as you have the aisle steps next to you so at least you can stretch your legs out. The raking is very good here and you can easily see over the people in front of you . The only issue is a lot of people tend to lean forward – this causes a domino effect meaning that you too have to lean forward for some of the show. That didn’t bother me but it may bother some people! The railings towards the right of you along the aisle may also impede your view slightly on the stage.

    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.

    Very central seat that doesn’t feel too far away or too close, offering a good view of all the stage. There is a fairly good rake down to the stage allowing for most people to see over the audiences’ heads. The seat itself is perfectly comfortable, while offering great legroom considering it is in the centre of the row. Highly recommended and probably one of the best seats in the theatre.

    Miranda Hart was perfect casting for Miss Hannigan. She was incredible and played it phenomenally. Couldn't have a better role! The dog my gosh was so cute and adorable, the little Annie was incredible and for such a young age too!! All in all it blew me away.
    Good legroom, I have quite long legs and as pretty happy with how far I could stretch them while seated. The back of the chairs are a little hard and uncomfortable, coming towards the interval my back was starting to hurt but it was a good view of the stage as a whole from here.

    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.

    Theatre was very hot as seats were reasonable close together. Had an excellent view and the comfort was very reasonable. Would sit here again.

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 staring national treasure Miranda Hart. Annie began performances on 23rd May 2017 and will continue until 6th January 2017.

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 them and the hope that she will one day see them again, Annie is determined to escape and find her real parents. 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 the Hard Knock Life, I Don’t Need Anything But You, Easy Street and Tomorrow.

Annie is set to star the British comedian and actress Miranda Hart as Miss Hannigan. Miranda is best known for her BBC Sitcom Miranda which ran from 2009 to 2015 and received three Royal Television Society, four British Comedy Awards and four Bafta Awards, becoming one of the most loved British TV series of the 21st century. Miranda Hart has also featured in a range of other popular TV shows including Call the Midwife and Not Going Out. Being a massive fan of the musical and even knowing every part, this gives Miranda the opportunity to fulfil her lifelong dream of staring in Annie on the West End.

From the 18th September 2017 Craig Revel Horwood takes over the role of Miss Hannigan. Know popularly for his role as judge on the The Strictly Come Dancing Horwood originally performed in Nikolai Foster's production of Annie in its 2015 tour. The performer's extensive stage credits include roles as Munkustrap in Cats, Harry in Crazy for You, as well as the dance captain for Miss Saigon.

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 Curve, Leicester, 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 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 Miranda Hart set to make her West End debut, it is also the perfect opportunity to see one of the country’s finest comedic performers.
