It's an embarrassment of musical theatre riches this year in Brisbane.
The latest big hit to hit the stage at QPAC is "Annie".
Although I had seen the movie a few times with Mackenzie, I had never seen the stage production so I went along expecting great things.
I wasn't disappointed, it was a loot of fun and the little girls who played the orphans were just fabulous.
The lead adults - Anthony Warlow, Nancye Hayes and Todd McKinney were sensational (as you'd expect).
The show itself is a little dated now, the scene in the White House was almost cringeworthy (not all Alan Jones's fault) and the repetition of "Tomorrow" and "Easy Street" became a little monotonous, but it did reflect the mood of the Depression and the determination of an optimistic few to make tomorrow a better day.
"Annie" was a treat.
