Brings Me Back: Andrea McArdle on Broadway

My first memory of going to NYC to see a Broadway show was in the late 1970s, when my mother took me and my siblings by theater bus (with other families from our area) to see ANNIE. It was early summer. I remember because there was a girl a year older than me on the bus who had an awful sunburn and kept saying “I’m so hot, I feel like a french fry.” Why do I remember such things?

Wonder whatever happened to Andrea McArdle. That girl could sing.

  1. That is awesome. I would have loved to see Annie. My first broadway musical was Rent. No, I’m sorry. Phantom of the Opra. Then Rent. I love Broadway! I saw Wicked last year at the Kennedy Center in DC, but the other 2 were in NYC.

    And I LOVED the movie Annie. I still do, and so does my daughter. 🙂

  2. Great to see this live performance. The first live theater performance I remember going to was to see The Pea and the Pauper at Grauman’s Chinese Theater in Hollywood. Carol Burnett was the princess (before she was well known). I laughed so hard I nearly peed in my pants. She made a deep impression on me.

    1. Carol Burnett is one of my favorite actress/comediennes. I grew up on her variety show. I would have loved to see her in her early days on the stage. Princess and the Pea?

So what do you think?
