MrB and I went to a screening of the new movie adaptation of Annie last night. Quvenzhané Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild) makes an adorable Annie and Jamie Foxx plays Will Stacks, the updated version of Daddy Warbucks. I enjoyed watching a little boy next to me literally sitting on the edge of his seat during the dramatic moments.
I first saw Annie on Broadway in 1979 — I believe it was my first Broadway play — and it just so happens that my gorgeous sister keeps all her Broadway Playbills. After the movie screening, I emailed an urgent request for photos of the Annie Playbill.
This is a special souvenir because look who played Annie: 14-year-old Sarah Jessica Parker!
According to SJP’s Playbill bio, she already had an impressive resume.
Big thanks to Terri Berry for saving this all of these years!
