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.
