Backstage at 'Annie' on Broadway

Posted: Updated:

By ANNA KOOIMAN | Fox News

The little orphan who told you the sun would come out tomorrow and reminded you that you're never fully dressed without a smile is back on Broadway. We went behind the scenes of "Annie: The Musical" for the 35th anniversary production.

Annie is an orphan, and the dog that she befriends on the street -- Sandy -- is a stray. Just like the show, the dog playing Sandy was saved from a shelter.

Lilla Crawford, 12, plays Annie.

"I have so many favorite parts of the show but one of my favorites is to work with the dog and I mean, every night is a different show," she says.

We went backstage in the costume area and saw Miss Hannigan's dress and Daddy Warbucks' overcoat.

"Annie" is playing at the Palace Theater on Broadway.

    New York City women are tired of hearing vile things yelled at them as they walk down the street. Many women are going public about street harassment and catcalling. Some even post picture of their offenders on social media. Founded in 2005, Hollaback! is an anti-harassment organization giving women a platform to do just that.

    Homeless people still sleep under the Manhattan Bridge, but others who used to camp out near its base have been displaced by police and are now calling Park Avenue South home. Park Avenue South sits in one of the trendiest parts of Manhattan, with businesses, restaurants, hotels, and swank lofts. It's also the street corner home base of Tommy Lanfranchi and his domestic partner Nicole Kilroy, who've been in a methadone program for 10 years.

    An all-you-can-drink brunch special at a restaurant in the Flatiron District appears to be leading to some serious drunken behavior. Video of drunk people vomiting, urinating and falling down as they leave Pranna on Madison Ave. and 28th St. has gone viral. In one incident, a woman walks into the middle of street apparently trying to hail a cab. She walks back to the sidewalk, falls down and lies on her side.
