The Tony Award winning musical Annie is in Philadelphia, and seats are filling up fast. Tickets range in price from $20 to $115.50 and are available by calling 215-731-3333, online at kimmelcenter.org/broadway, or at the Kimmel Center box office- Broad & Spruce Sts. Annie is truly one of the world’s best-loved musicals, and received accolades for songs such as “Tomorrow” and “It’s the Hard Knock Life.” The show exudes an overwhelmingly infectious dose of optimism, so a ticket is going will certainly put a smile on your face.
Originally debuting on Broadway in the 1970’s, Annie is based upon the popular comic strip by Harold Gray, Little Orphan Annie. And, if you are like us, you adore the music, so commend Annie’s musical composure Charles Strouse. Mr. Srouse’s work has cemented its place into popular culture with several renditions of his work being produced by various artists including the rap version that became very popular from Jay-Z.
This brand new production of Annie, is being directed by Marin Charnin and features a 25 member company. In the title role of Annie is Issie Swickle a 9 year old actress from Davie, FL. We suggest turning it into a group affair and inviting friends and family for a night out to see Annie in Philadelphia. This heart touching story about an orphan who knows there are better days ahead is something that should be shared and celebrated.
