Post Kinda O/T: Annie VS Anne of Green Gables
I just watched Annie and realized how close she is to Anne of Green Gables:

-They both have the 'Ann' name
-They both have red hair
-They are both orphans
-They were almost sent back to the orphanage because they were girls
-They both have a musical and a movie based of of literature ("Little Orphan Annie" comic books/"Anne of Green Gables" by L.M. Montgomery)


I dunno... just some things I noticed.

This is a bump, but it I agree. Anne of Green Gables and Annie are very alike.. I think of Anne of Green Gables as a canadian Annie..
the musicals are definitely different though.

I played Gilbert Blythe in a straight play version of Anne of Green Gables...the first play I was in that made my mother cry lol. It was a blast...especially because I had a huge crush on our Anne at the time...hehe.

We got to do a special performance for like...a billion elementary school students...so much fun...we had a comedic pause of about 5 minutes when I got hit with the chalk board. Loved it.

Marilla is such a great part (especially in the musical.. I Can't Find The Words Reprise is SUCH a great song!!!)
