Review: ANNIE The Musical in Boston

Disclosure: I received a four pack of tickets to attend Annie. All opinions – as always are my own.

This past Wednesday our family was invited to the opening night of ANNIE The Musical at the Citi Performing Arts Center Wang Theatre in Boston. Along with my sister and niece we waited anxiously for Annie and Oliver Warbucks to arrive for the red carpet. And oh – they arrived in style!

Little Annie was played by 9 year old Issie Swickle – and as soon as she got out the car she was a ray of sunshine and generously signed playbills for eager kids including my own!

I mean who doesn’t love Annie? It’s a great show, with incredible music and a great ending. Watching the movie that we love so much come to life on stage was a special experience. The group of orphans were animated and dynamic and a lot of fun. Miss Hannigan played by Lynn Andrews was my favorite character in the musical! She brought her own sass and humor to the musical that I know the adults really enjoyed!

After we left the show my daughter pulled me aside and asked me if there were any singing or dancing camps she could attend next summer. She was taken by the coordination and enthusiasm of the kids in the show and it only fueled her desire to one day (sooner than later) hit the big stage!

Be sure to catch ANNIE while the show is in Boston which is until November 16, 2014! Directed by original lyricist and director Martin Charnin and choreographed by Liza Gennaro, this production of ANNIE is a brand new incarnation of the iconic original. Featuring book and score by Tony Award®-winners Thomas Meehan, Charles Strouse and Martin Charnin, ANNIE includes such unforgettable songs as “It’s the Hard Knock Life,” “Easy Street,” “I Don’t Need Anything But You,” plus the eternal anthem of optimism, “Tomorrow.”

With Halloween now over, it’s only a matter of time before Christmas will be knocking on the door. I’m not quite ready to accept this truth, even though I’ve already begun Christmas shopping! Along with the hustle and bustle of Christmas comes an important tradition in our house – watching A Christmas Story. The day long marathon still excites me and the jokes never get stale – it’s a classic movie that will never go out of style. We are a musical family and are delighted that A Christmas Story, The Musical is coming to the Citi Wang Theatre this holiday season!

Celebrate the holidays with this cherished story that will entertain the whole family with this heart-warming classic tale! The story from a cherished movie classic that has enchanted millions is now a musical spectacular. The story takes place in 1940’s Indiana, where a bespectacled boy named Ralphie has a big imagination and one wish for Christmas—a Red Ryder BB Gun. A kooky leg lamp, outrageous pink bunny pajamas, a cranky department store Santa, and a triple dog-dare to lick a freezing flagpole are just a few of the obstacles that stand between Ralphie and his Christmas dream. Co-produced by the film’s original Ralphie, Peter Billingsley, A Christmas Story, The Musical is musical comedy entertainment that captures a simpler time in America with delicious with and a heart of gold.
