Autographed two bar musical quotation of the hit song “Tomorrow” by the composer on a 3” x 5” card.  We offer with an original autographed 7” x 9” photograph.

  The hit show “Annie” based upon the comic strip “Little Orphan Annie” opened on Broadway on April 21, 1977.  That year it won Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Original Score and Best Original Book.  The song was not originally in the show and was written by Strouse for an upcoming musical that Strouse was working on, “Charlie and Algernon”.  It even had an earlier life in a short 1970 film entitled “Replay”.  The story goes that “Annie” had a difficult group of performances in Washington D.C. prior to the opening on Broadway and Strouse got together with lyricist Martin Charnin and added the song into the show.  The rest is history.

Today, while it is still in the musical which has been performed around the world with regularity.  It is a song of hope which has been recorded on its’ in film and television and even in a disco and rap versions.

Strouse has written the scores to numerous Broadway shows including Tony Award winning “Bye Bye Birdie”, “Nick and Nora”, “Applause”, “Mayor” and “Dance A Little Closer”.
