Tony nominee Michael Arden directs the summer performances of the Tony-winning musical.
The star-studded Hollywood Bowl staging of the Tony-winning musical Annie plays the outdoor venue July 27–29.
The cast features Ana Gasteyer as Miss Hannigan, David Alan Grier as Oliver “Daddy” Warbucks, Megan Hilty as Lily St. Regis, Tony winner Lea Salonga as Grace Farrell, Tony winner Roger Bart as Daniel Rooster Hannigan, Kaylin Hedges as Annie, Ali Stroker as Star-to-Be, Amir Talai as Bert Healy, Marlow Barkley as Kate, Amadi Chapata as Pepper, Noe Lynds as July, Rae Martinez as Tessie, Malea Emma Tjandrawidjaja as Molly, Olivia Zenetzis as Duffy, and Steven Weber as Franklin D. Roosevelt.
The production is helmed by Tony-nominated director Michael Arden, who directed Salonga in this season's currently-running, Tony-winning Broadway revival of Once On This Island.
The creative team also includes conductor Todd Ellison and choreographer Eamon Foley.
This new production marks the 90th birthday of the show's composer, Charles Strouse, who wrote the hit show along with lyricist Martin Charnin and bookwriter Thomas Meehan. Since its Broadway debut in 1977, Annie has been revived twice on Broadway (in 1997 and 2014), spawned numerous national tours, and been adapted into three films (in 1982, 1999, and 2014).
