I saw that production as well as a production years ago at a theater in the round in Long Island, NY with Andrea as Annie in Annie Get Your Gun. Both times, she was fantastic and seemingly born for the part. Her voice was simply breathtaking especially during "I got lost in his arms". Once when I met her, she told me she auditioned for it when it was on Broadway but the Weisslers wouldn't let her do it because she wasn't a big enough name. Sad, because she was meant for that part and was perfection. The Reagle Players' production made me remember her star quality.. she simply beams and shines on stage and it's like no matter what else was going on, you are drawn to want to watch her. It is a natural fit for her.
