LEAPIN’ LIZARDS! Bronzeville in Broadway brings to Chicago an all new production of one of the most acclaimed musicals of the past 35 years!
Little orphan Annie, based upon the popular Harold Gray comic strip, charms everyone’s hearts, despite a next-to-nothing start in 1930s New York City. And now, alongside her signature pal dog, Sandy, she’s set her sights on making us grin from ear to ear as she inspires a whole new millennium. Winner of 7 Tony Awards® including Best Musical, ANNIE – with Music by Charles Strouse, Lyrics by Martin Charnin, and Book by Thomas Meehan – makes its triumphant debut at the Harold Washington Cultural Center in a brand new production directed by Cassandra Bell.
