The original Broadway production of Annie opened 41 years ago on April 21, 1977, at what was then the Alvin Theatre (now the Neil Simon). The production dominated the 1977 Tonys, earning awards for Best Musical, Score, and Book. Andrea McArdle received a Tony nomination for Best Lead Actress in a Musical, but the award went to her co-star, Dorothy Loudon, who played Miss Hannigan.
