Meerra Syal joins Annie

Following in Miranda Hart's footsteps

Meeral Syal is taking over as the big-name star of Annie in the West End.

The Goodness Gracious Me star follows in the footsteps of Craig Revel Horwood and Miranda Hard in the role of villainous orphange boss Miss Hannigan from November 27.

She said: ‘Annie’s a totally iconic show. You mention Annie to people and they all get really quite teary. Everyone’s got this little sentimental place for it. They know the songs; it’s an amazing score it still stands up. It’s a true family show with a huge heart.'

Those songs include Tomorrow and It’s A Hard Knock Life.

The show is running at the Piccadilly Theatre.

Announcing our new Miss Hannigan - the brilliant Meera Syal 🌟 Catch Meera in #AnnieWestEnd from 27 November!
