Lilla Crawford stars as the perky red-headed orphan in the Broadway revival of the 1977 show that introduced generations of children to the tuneful optimism of traditional Broadway musicals. Annie has music by Charles Strouse, lyrics by Martin Charnin and a book by Thomas Meehan. James Lapine directs the revival of the musical, replete with a "New Deal for Christmas" as part of its happy ending. Annie continues at the Palace Theatre.
