"Annie: It's the Hard-Knock Life, From Script to Stage" debuts in the New York metropolitan area on WNET/13 June 28 at 9 PM ET. Here is never-before-seen footage from the program that shows the young stars of the Tony-nominated revival receiving news that they were cast.
The one-hour program is described as such: "It’s been 35 years since the little orphan Annie first stepped onto a Broadway stage. The show-stopping musical Annie, its characters and its songs are timeless and classic, and for the musical’s return to Broadway, this documentary offers a memorable behind-the-scenes look at every step of the production number 'It’s the Hard-Knock Life,' from the earliest phases of discussion among the creative team, rehearsals with actors, to opening night."
Encore broadcasts on WNET are scheduled for June 30 at 7 PM and July 2 at 3:30 AM.
The revival of the family favorite, which currently features Jane Lynch as Miss Hannigan, continues at Broadway's Palace Theatre.
You're invited to spend an evening filled with personal tales of difficult choices, bad breaks, worse men and some of the most glorious songs ever written. It's an intimate evening, up close with a legend.
So pull up a chair and order up a drink. Because she's got a life to sing. Tickets as low as $85!
