  • I enjoyed the energy that was visible on the screen, and the sumptuousness of the production numbers, and the good humor of several of the performances. show more

  • This charming musical based on the comic strip character Little Orphan Annie features many memorable songs and pleasant dance numbers. show more

  • In the end, this musical is not a disgrace - Huston has too much experience to let the thing die. But he cannot summon the magic required to let it live. Watching Annie is like being buried alive in balloons. [21 May 1982]
