The Playbill Vault Remembers Tony Award Winner Dorothy Loudon
15 Nov 2013
Dorothy Loudon, who created the role of evil orphanage headmistress Miss Hannigan in the original production of Annie, died Nov. 15, 2003, at the age of 78. The Playbill Vault looks back at notable performances from her Broadway stage career.
Loudon made her Broadway debut in the 1962 musical Nowhere to Go But Up. The show lasted only a week, but Loudon received good reviews and a Theatre World Award for her performance.
Deaf West’s production of SPRING AWAKENING floored the critics when it premiered in California, prompting the Los Angeles Times to write, "It's hard to enumerate all the ways in which Deaf West's SPRING AWAKENING is so very, very good." Now this unapologetically brilliant new production is coming to New York.
