Annie Warbucks, by Thomas Meehan, music by Charles Strouse, lyrics by Martin Charnin
Warbucks Needs a Little More Bucks
Tuesday, January 3, 2006
2.0
There is one thing I don't like about this site. It seems that the minute an opinion, good or bad, is given about a person, suddenly there is a good buddy popping up to defend or an enemy jumping out to attack. This site is all about opinions. It couldn't exsist otherwise. A review is nothing more than one person's opinion of a show. I wish we could all remember that and stop unnecessarily attacking each other or freaking out if we read a negative review about someone we know. It'd make this site a lot healthier.
That being said, I did not care very much for Annie Warbucks. Oh, the kids were cute enough, and the Kelly/Doyle combo were quite fab. The Annie was a good singer and knew her lines. The Daddy Warbucks(that would be Hardie) and paramour were okay, the servants were okay....and wait, that's the problem I had with this show. It was okay, and a tad on the side of boring. It was never bad. Sometimes slow, sometimes dull. It just lacked something. You could see quite clearly that the performers were trying, but no ummmmphhh! I have to lay the blame on poor direction. Still, it didn't totally suck, and I would recommend the show for kids who enjoy Annie. The youth in the audience of the show I attended seem rather chipper about the whole thing and applauded like mad, so that was, at least, encouraging. So take the kids to see the show. They'll love it. But don't be suprised if you nod off.
