The NYPL is in the process of releasing the great Martha Swope's Broadway photos to the digital age......including those she took for "Annie".

Great find!  Brings back so many memories!

WOW! these are amazing! The should take the best of the best and make a coffee table book with these.

Tthanks Buckmeister

Those are great! That's the "Annie" I remember. I especially like seeing the close-ups of the girls who played Annie and playing the role in scenes, and also the DW and MH ones. I think all the B-way Annies really look the part. Some of these photos are in Martin's Theater Memoir. Martha Swope was a very talented photographer.

Still not sure I will like the changes in the revival, but we'll see!

Wow! There are so many!!! I never would have guessed so many pictures had been taken from so many different productions, I haven't even had time to see them all yet.

I find Andera's wig to be almost brown.  When she is with the orphans if I didn't know better I'd think Robyn was "Annie".

Glad they changed the wig color when Shelly assumed the role.

What great pictures!

Some of these pix are very interesting - I can't imagine getting through them all, but I was kind of jumping around -  and all the ones of Alyson Kirk without the wig feature her with blonde hair! :)

This is a super long URL, hopefully it will work -

Thanks for sharing - this is really stunning!  It's like seeing the whole show in pictures! :D

I see my cast on page 77 and page 85. What fun!


Do you remember the day those pix were taken?

Yes, I sure do. I was sad that by the time that I joined the Broadway Cast, they were no longer shooting new cast photos. Alyson Kirk had some Annie photos taken, but I never got any official cast photos as Pepper. I have one of my Tessie photos framed in my house, though.


These really are fantastic. I could spend hours clicking through (and probably will, at some point....!)

I agree!  I love seeing all the different casts!

Didn't realize what an ADORABLE Annie Allison Smith was early on - - these must have been when she was first cast!
