Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Andrea McArdle (born November 5, 1963) is an American singer and actress best known for playing Annie in the Broadway musical Annie, as well as for her alto range and strong vocal belt. She was born in Philadelphia. While studying dance as a child, she was spotted by a talent agent who got her work in a number of television commercials, which led to her two-and-a-half year stint on the soap opera Search for Tomorrow. She also appeared on Al Alberts Showcase, a local televised talent show in Philadelphia. McArdle's break came in early 1977 when she was pulled from the chorus of orphans to replace Kristen Vigard, the original Annie in the Broadway musical Annie, during rehearsals. The show was a critical and commercial smash, and she became the youngest performer ever to be nominated for a Tony Award as Best Lead Actress in a Musical. She lost to co-star Dorothy Loudon--who played Miss Hannigan-but did receive the Theater World and Outer Critics' Circle Awards for her performance.show more
