Annie The Musical Brings A Delightful Taste of Broadway To Singapore!
The critically acclaimed worldwide phenomenon, Annie, has recently hit the shores of Singapore!
It has been almost 40 years since the original Broadway Production first opened its curtains to musical theatre enthusiasts. But the rich tale of the well-loved orphan, Annie (played by Heidi Gray), is still fluttering the hearts of both young and adult fans.
The rags-to-riches play momentarily brought back to life everyone’s childhood memories with the production’s most popular score, Tomorrow.
But of course, the musical was not devoid of well-executed dance numbers. A few that are worthy of praise are It’s The Hard Knock Life by adorable little orphan girls, which followed Miss Hannigan’s dramatic rendition of Little Girls.
Though the equally talented cast’s flawless vocals and synchronized choreography are unquestionable, the star of night remained to be Lynn Andrews, drawing cheers from every corner of the hall as she played the matron Miss Hannigan – a way to bring humor to the already delightful show.
Swift changes in scenes accompanied by visually pleasing backdrops took over Marina Bay Sands Theatre. Every scene brings you to the setting of 1930s New York. But the second half of the play completely captured the audience with it’s gorgeous stage set up fully propped with a giant lit tree that brought the spirit of Christmas four months early.
However, Annie The Musical proved to be more than just a timeless classic with the balanced use of wit and brilliantly presented musical numbers. It remains one of this year’s must-watch productions – a spectacular musical not to be missed!
