Post Sequels to Annie
After the original run of Annie, lyricist Martin Charnin (in his infinite wisdom :roll: ) decided to sequelize Annie twice(!), both times with disasterous results. The attempts were "Annie 2: Miss Hannigan's Revenge" and "Annie Warbucks". Interestingly enough, the Annie trilogy is the only known work of Martin Charnin. Now. the first Annie, of course, is great (perfect, almost), so why did Charnin not only try to duplicate the success of the first Annie, but not try anything else other than about Annie?

Annie is far from Charnin's only work..


Two By Two is probably his best work. he and Richard Rodgers qwrote the show .it starred Danny Kaye..

other Chaarnin works:

I Remember Mama
The First
Madwoman of Central Park West
and
Zenda

And, I'm pretty sure that "Annie 2: Miss Hannigan's Revenge" was RETITLED as "Annie Warbucks". That's what it says on the MTI website. So they are the same musical.

Actually,

when Annie 2 was in previews, it failed miserably, people thought the story was horrible, and the songs weren't that great.

Annie Warbucks and Annie 2 are completly seperate musicals. Annie Warbucks is the show that "made it" where as Annie 2 sat on the cutting room floor.

There was also a sequel to the movie... I think it's called Annie Goes To London... or something like that.

On the website of Music Theatre International (MTI):

Did you know?

Annie Warbucks began life as Annie 2: Miss Hannigan’s Revenge (the marquee had even been put up at the Marquis Theatre in anticipation of the moppet’s return to Broadway).



So Annie Warbucks and Annie 2: Miss Hannigan's Revenge are NOT the same musical?

I'm confused! :lol:

Annie Warbucks is a revision of ANNIE 2.

Same as Grand Hotel :the Musical is a revised version of At The Grand.

Annie is a musical that shouldn't have been made once, much less two and a half times! :)
