The singing is incredibly good and complemented by a talented live orchestra! The acting is remarkable considering this is a period piece and there is a need for costuming, set design and characters to be correct. Some of the actors really stand out as masters: Miss Hannigan, Miss Grace, Daddy Warbucks, President FDR, the butler, the chef, the smallest orphan girl and of couse Annie!The dog was very cute, but not so cooperative and 'broke character', but I thought Annie handled the dog quite well!
With equal measures of pluck and positivity, little orphan Annie charms everyone’s hearts, despite a next-to-nothing start in 1930s New York City. She is determined to find her parents, who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of a New York City Orphanage run by the cruel, embittered Miss Hannigan.
With the help of the other girls in the Orphanage, Annie escapes to the wondrous and magical world of NYC. In adventure after fun-filled adventure, Annie foils Miss Hannigan’s evil machinations and befriends President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. She finds a new home and family in billionaire Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary Grace Farrell, and a lovable mutt named Sandy.
