Sunday night was a girl’s night out for my daughter, her best pal from school, and her mom and I. None of us had been to a Broadway musical and we were all excited that Annie would be our first together. We drove to downtown Seattle to see Annie on opening night to a large crowd of other families. It was a great experience.
Have you seen a Broadway play or musical? If so, which one?
If you have not been to the Paramount Theatre in Seattle it is a MUST experience. Opening in March of 1928, the Paramount Theatre is breathtaking. True architectural majesty, indeed! On March 1, 1928, the Seattle Theatre opened. The Seattle Times heralded the occasion with enthusiasm:
Never has such a magnificent cathedral of entertainment been given over to the public. Indescribable beauty! Incomparable art! The stage productions will be of the most lavish design, brilliant in their lighting effects and gorgeous in their settings. source
This brand new production features a 25 member company: in the title role of Annie is Issie Swickle, a 10-year-old actress from Davie, FL, making her tour debut. Gilgamesh Taggett will star as Oliver Warbucks. In the role of Miss Hannigan is Lynn Andrews. Also starring in the tour are Ashley Edler as Grace, Garrett Deagon as Rooster, Lucy Werner as Lily and Jeffrey B. Duncan as FDR. Sunny, a 5-year-old rescue terrier mix, stars as Sandy.
Right when the curtain opened, we were amazed. The set design was fabulous and looked so realistic. It was opening night and I didn’t notice anything amiss. The production was so professional and entertaining for all ages. Though, our girls did get tired, they still had a fabulous time at the show.
Lynn Andrews does any amazing job playing Miss Hannigan. She really stole the show in my opinion. There is no one like Carol Burnett, but Andrews is such a wonderful actress – you really loved hating Miss Hannigan and there was a lot of laughter for her antics.
