According to published reports, the Hollywood Bowl will present a staging of Annie July 27-29. Michael Arden will direct the production. Casting and further creatives will be announced later.
The classic musical, based on the Little Orphan Annie comic strip, features a book by the late Thomas Meehan, music by Charles Strouse, and lyrics by Martin Charnin, all of whom received Tony Awards for their work during the original 1977 production.
Arden is currently represented on Broadway with the revival of the Lynn Ahrens-Stephen Flaherty musical Once on This Island at Circle in the Square Theatre.
