Annie The Musical Coming to Boston Discount Code Plus a Giveaway

annie_main_600x438__largeANNIE is making a stop from November 5-16, 2014 at Boston’s Citi Performing Arts Center (Wang Theatre) on it’s National Tour. The show is directed by original lyricist and director Martin Charnin for the 18th time, but this production of ANNIE will be a brand new performance of the iconic Tony Award-winning original.

The original production of ANNIE opened April 21, 1977 at the Alvin Theatre and went on to win the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Musical, seven Drama Desk Awards including Best Musical, the Grammy for Best Cast Show Album and seven Tony Awards®, including Best Musical, Best Book (Thomas Meehan) and Best Score (Charles Strouse, Martin Charnin). The show remains one of the biggest Broadway musical hits ever. It ran for 2,377 performances after it first opened, and has been performed in 28 languages and has been running somewhere around the world for 37 years. It also gave us a first glimpse of soon-to-be star Sarah Jessica Parker.

The beloved score for ANNIE includes “Maybe,” “It’s the Hard Knock Life,” “You’re Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile,” “Easy Street,” “I Don’t Need Anything But You” and the eternal anthem of optimism, “Tomorrow.”
