They're Gonna Like It Here: 'Annie The Musical' At Proctors
The classic American musical, Annie, is at Proctors in Schenectady this week in a touring production which chooses to eschew recent adaptations and modifications to spin back to the pure fun of the original Broadway production.
Opening last night, the new tour is staged by Annie’s original lyricist-director Martin Charnin. Featuring book and score by Charnin and Tony Award®-winners Thomas Meehan, and Charles Strouse. Annie includes - as if we needed to tell you - such unforgettable songs as "Easy Street," "I Don't Need Anything But You," and "Tomorrow."
And what would Annie’s story be without her ultimately-adoptive father - Oliver “Daddy” Warbucks? In this touring company, Daddy Warbucks is played by Gilgamesh Taggett.
