Did You Know?
Among the deletions from the script in this version were:
- Four songs, including the original title song, "Annie"
- A subplot involving Sandy, who goes missing in the original musical
- The White House "Tomorrow" reprise, which was replaced by a scene involving Grace Farrell and Annie
- The ending was subtly changed so that Miss Hannigan portrays Mrs. Mudge instead of Lily St. Regis.
Before the Christmas party, Mr. Warbucks and Annie are singing and dancing; at one point during this song ("I Don't Need Anything But You") Annie's lips move as she sings her line, but no sound comes out. See more
