Don't Wait Until Tomorrow

If you're in San Antonio in the next few days, see Annie at The Playhouse San Antonio.  I will disclose that I'm close to the show.  Marissa Ramon who stars as Annie is my niece. I might be a little biased, but watch this clip of her signing Tomorrow on WOAI this morning, her talent shines  (Marissa starts singing with 2:11 remaining).  She takes the song to a place it hasn't been, which is refreshing and poignant.  Her performance is so touching there are more than a few tears in the audience.   Word has it that the interaction between Marissa's Annie and William McCrary's Daddy Warbucks is magical. 

We also have another family member in the musical. Sandy, my in-law's Golden Retriever, is Sandy. 

Annie runs until December 23rd at The Playhouse San Antonio, Russell Hill Rogers Theater. 


  1. Bravo Marissa. Glad to see that teenagers and
    their dogs are pouring so much effort into
    the arts.

    Beautifully written, Paula! Marissa and I loved having Keith see the show, but terribly missing you! In 4 more years Marissa is ready to head to NYC, maybe as her Uncle Keith still recommends Yale! (I never plan the future, but that is Marissa's dream)
    Love you,
