I responded a few pages ago when someone else posted these clips. I think this Annie is the next best after Andrea. Her voice is just so crystal clear and crisp and has spunk (like Andrea's). She's very natural and unaffected... no over the top hand gestures or expressions. When she sings "maybe" it is pure and simple, her expressions are just simply longing and hopeful.. and that is the best kind of Annie in my opinion. This was a production in NJ; I wonder if she ever auditioned for Broadway/the tour. She should have been a Broadway Annie. I think she is much much much better than any of the Annies since the Broadway years that is for certain. I really like the whole look and feel of this production - very very reminiscent of the original cast.
