Miranda Hart has confirmed that the rumours are true, she will be making her West End debut in the musical Annie as Miss Hannigan, a role made famous by comedian Carol Burnett in the film version of the musical.
For the comedian, playing Miss Hannigan has long been “a dream role” she never thought would come true. “But here we are and I have a newly found musical theatre-esque spring in my step,
“I hope people will leave the theatre feeling life is a little better and dreamier and jollier after watching it, as much as we feel that performing it,”
“Now if you’ll excuse me, I have some leg-warmers to put on.”
Previews at London’s Piccadilly Theatre on 23rd May.
