Who doesn't know that song? As an early Birthday gift, I took my sister to see "Annie" at the Richard and Karen Carpenter Performing Arts Center in Long Beach. What a true piece of American Theatre. It's hard to believe that show is 33 years old! Even more surprising is that Andrea McArdle, the original Annie, was in the show, but this time taking the role of Miss Hannigan!
It was a wonderful production and we all enjoyed it heartily. Since this show was during the annual "Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS" fundraising drive, they invited the audience members to meet the cast afterwards and place donations in baskets. Broadway Cares is one of the nations' leading industry based HIV/AIDS fundraising and grant making organizations. We happily tossed money in the baskets and I coerced my sister to pose with "Sandy" the dog. How cute is that?!
Ta Ta for now...
