To commemorate the 30th anniversary of one of the longest running and most beloved Broadway productions, Time Life is proud to release Annie:The Broadway Musical 30th Anniversary Cast Recording.

Leapin' Lizards! For her 30th anniversary this year, Little Orphan Annie is getting the full Daddy Warbucks treatment courtesy of Time-Life Records: Annie 30th Anniversary Cast Recording.

Included in the deluxe two-disc recording will be the complete score of Martin Charnin and Charles Strouse's Tony Award-winning Best Musical as well as - and here's where musical theater fanatics can really begin rejoicing—the complete score of the never-recorded sequel Annie 2: Miss Hannigan's Revenge, which closed out of town. (The latter was revamped in 1993 for the off-Broadway musical Annie Warbucks.)

Making this double CD set extra magical is the parade of stars associated with the show that are performing. From Annie #1 Andrea McArdle to the movie's Miss Hannigan Carol Burnett to Broadway Star To Be Shelly Burch to the longest-playing Daddy Warbucks Conrad John Schuck to Madison Square Garden's Hannigan Kathie Lee Gifford and many more!
