Composer Charles Strouse hit paydirt when he teamed with Martin Charnin (lyrics) and Thomas Meehan (book) to create a show based on the Sunday strip “Little Orphan Annie.” As the waif in search of parents, Andrea McArdle achieved stardom with her sunny anthem “Tomorrow.” Reid Shelton was her wealthy protector Daddy Warbucks, and Dorothy Loudon was Miss Hannigan, in charge of Annie’s drab orphanage. Annie opened at the Alvin Theatre in April 1977, ran for 2,377 performances, and won the Tony® for Best Musical. First LP release May 1977.
