The sketch will come up tomorrow, bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow, there'll be Sardi's... On, Jan. 26, Andrea McArdle, Broadway's original Annie and current Belle in Beauty and the Beast, will get yet another measure of theatre fame. Her caricature portrait will go up on the famed wall at Sardi's Restaurant, 234 West 44th Street.
According to a press rep, fellow cast-members from Beauty will be on hand for the 5:30 PM presentation and hanging of the sketch, painted by Richard Baratz.
McArdle is best remembered for singing the signature tune, "Tomorrow," from Annie, though she got to sing a different tune ("NYC") from the show in Disney's recent TV film of the musical.
