That's Andy was conceived by Bobby Cronin and features book and lyrics by Crystal Skillman and music and additional lyrics by Kevin Carter. The new work is described as a "a comedic, family-friendly musical about a 10-year-old boy named Andy who dreams of playing the lead in Annie. When Andy shows up to the audition in a red dress, everyone goes haywire. His story takes the nation by storm, sending a confused Andy into the twisted world of reality television in search of the answer to his simple question: 'What did I do wrong?'"
