Summer Lyric's Annie: Total Sugar Shock - 2001
When it made its initial success in 1976, Annie, a musical based on Harold Gray's comic strip, Little Orphan Annie, was presented as a three-dimensional cartoon. The original Annie, Andrea McArdle, was even dressed like the cartoon character and sported the same Sienna red Afro wig. This is the approach that director James Miller took with young Jennifer Marks in Summer Lyric Theatre's recent production of the musical that boasts a book by Thomas Meehan, with music by Charles Strouse and lyrics by Martin Charnin staged at Tulane's Dixon Hall.
Ms. Marks, a middle-of-the-line 11 year old, also played Annie with her own hair, this time tied up in twin side ponytails, like Pippi Longstocking - hair that did not read as red from the middle of the auditorium, even with red light shining on it. This was a real flesh and blood girl, not a cartoon figure and, as such, her desire to find her real parents and get out of the horrible orphanage presided over by the drunk and abusive Miss Hannigan (a fabulous Wanda Rouzan) made the already saccharine-sweet tale even more treacly.
As is par for the course with Summer Lyric musical productions, the orchestra, conducted with her usual school marm strictness by Pamela Legendre, was much too large and bright for the auditorium, which meant that sound levels for body mikes had to be jiggered up. Unfortunately, on opening night, only Wanda Rouzan's mike seemed to be defective, causing her diction to be muddy; of course, as a noted jazz singer Ms. Rouzan has a tendency to embellish and elide lyrics, which also added to her songs' indistinctness, especially on "Little Girls." No such trouble occurred with any of the other singers. Indeed, young Ms. Marks possessed the necessary big, brassy belter's voice and her diction was of professional quality; to say nothing of having the acting chops to melt the full house and reduce it to Silly Putty - even if her Sandy was an immaculately groomed Golden Retriever (named Montana and supplied by Jean Manino of JCM's Obedience School). He sat when he was supposed to, did his mandatory solo cross from stage right to stage left and otherwise upstaged the humans provoking oohs and aahs. It was enough to make a W. C. Fields type gag - or go into total sugar shock!
