Importance of Annie In My Life.

Just last night, I watched the 1982 movie of Annie, which is one of my favorite movie musicals. Annie was one of those musicals that has lived with me since elementary school. It was one of the first musicals I ever fell in love with. Before Wicked became my favorite musical, Annie was my favorite musical.

 Now that I think of it, I believe I loved Annie due to Annie’s optimism and of how she takes in Sandy. Annie is very special to me and reminds me of my childhood. Annie is about an orphan who gets to spend a week with Daddy Warbucks. As the story continues, Daddy Warbucks begins to fall in love with her. At the end of the story, he adopts Annie.

In 2014, I finally got to see Annie live. While watching, I felt like a kid again. Due to being much older, I found a bigger appreciation for the musical. Annie will always be special to me. It was one of the musicals that I grew up with and helped create the foundation of musicals helped create my vision of what I want from a musical.

    1. Annie is one of those simple musicals that I love. Even though I tend to prefer complex musicals, I can love simple musicals. Annie has an incredible optimism.

      Other childhood favorite musicals were Sound of Music and Beauty and the Beast. But to be honest, Beauty and the Beast had to reenter my life because I did sort of forget I loved that musical back when I was younger

      3. Unfortunately I have never bought the Annie soundtrack. Actually, I don’t even know why. I’m kinda looking over at my collection and Annie seems to be one of the only ones of the musicals that I love that I don’t have…

      4. My favorite song from Annie is “tomorrow” and her optimism really shines in that song. I still need to get the soundtrack of “Beauty and the Beast”, the Broadway version. Ever since seeing the live version, I honestly know I did to get the Broadway version
