Commentaires : This was re-created by the same production team that staged the original London production in 1978 - twenty years earlier. Most critics welcomed it back, though one or two felt the intervening decades had taken the edge off the show. It ran for five months.
Presse : ROBERT GORE-LANGTON of THE DAILY EXPRESS says, A vat of shameless syrup, I lapped it up. In the West End race for the big Christmas outing, Annie moves into poll position."

BENEDICT NIGHTINGALE of THE TIMES said "I enjoyed Thomas Meehan, Charles Strouse and Martin Charnin's musical when it first hit London 20 years ago, and, sap that I still must be, I enjoyed its latest revival. "

NICHOLAS DE JONGH of THE EVENING STANDARD says, "This beautifully staged revival of the 1970s American musical that rivals peaches and cream for unadulterated wholesomeness proves the age of innocence is alive and well."
