I saw the tour this weekend and thought everyone did a great job. I really liked David Barton's portrayal of Warbucks, J. Michael Zygo as Rooster and Lynn Andrews as Hannigan (although she did appear a little too young in my opinion). I thought all the orphans and Amanda did a great job. I preferred Amanda's acting over her singing but thought she was great. I thought Annalisa did a great job as Molly (very talented) but I thought because of her size she came off as a bit of a smart alec rather than adorable. I am from the old school that prefers a tiny Molly and a small(ish) Annie and then various size orphans-but that is just my opinion. Overall it was very entertaining. It is a little strange that the cast is so small(in number) and young (adult ensemble). I felt they all did a great job it just looked a little sparse.
