Crawford made her Broadway debut in Billy Elliot. Read the recent Playbill magazine feature about Crawford.
The new Broadway revival of the 1977 Tony Award-winning musical about a Depression-era orphan who becomes the guest of a billionaire opened Nov. 8 at the Palace Theatre. James Lapine directs the show written by Martin Charnin, Charles Strouse and Thomas Meehan.
Crawford, who uses a street-tough, Noo Yawk accent as Annie for this production, is originally from California, where she saw a touring production of Annie (twice).
The cast also includes Anthony Warlow as Oliver Warbucks, Katie Finneran as Miss Hannigan, Clarke Thorell as Rooster, Brynn O'Malley as Warbucks' personal assistant, Grace Farrell and J. Elaine Marcos as Rooster's girlfriend Lily St. Regis.
