ANNIE is Coming to the Boch Center Wang Theater in Boston May 9-21!

The original production of ANNIE opened April 21, 1977 at the Alvin Theatre and went on to win the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Musical, seven Drama Desk Awards including Best Musical, the Grammy for Best Cast Show Album and seven Tony Awards®, including Best Musical, Best Book (Thomas Meehan) and Best Score (Charles Strouse, Martin Charnin). The show remains one of the biggest Broadway musical hits ever. It ran for 2,377 performances after it first opened, and has been performed in 28 languages and has been running somewhere around the world for 39 years.

The beloved score for ANNIE includes “Maybe,” “It’s the Hard Knock Life,” “You’re Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile,” “Easy Street,” “I Don’t Need Anything But You” and the eternal anthem of optimism, “Tomorrow.”

  1. I want to win!!!! I have adopted 6 kids from foster care so Annie is our favorite we watch it 2x weekly!

  2. When I was in the 4th grade my parents surprised me by dismissing me from school and taking me to the Wang center in Boston to see Annie, my first musical! It was magical!
    I would love to have the chance to carry out this special tradition with my 4th grade son, who absolutely ADORES musicals…

  3. I have seen the movie and I heard the broadway version is great as well..

  4. Annie is one of my favorites!!! I’ve made my boys watch it. They really didn’t mind.

  5. I’d like to win because Annie is the first musical I remember seeing, when I was six years old.

  6. I’ve always loved theatre. Annie is the first musical my little daughter has loved. She has never been to a live musical and I think she would love it!

  7. Annie is 11 days younger than me and I have only seen the movie version.

  8. I would LOVE to see this! I have never ever been to a show! Of any kind! My family and I are huge Annie lovers

  9. Love Annie! I would love to take my family to see it.

  10. This would be amazing. It is my husband’s favorite play and he actually coached my daughter and helped her study the role of Miss Hannigan. She tried out for the Community theater production of Annie last year and landed the role. She did an amazing job but has not yet seen the Broadway play. I would love to let them experience it together.

  11. I would love to take my kids ! We have never seen it before!
