‘Annie’ finds its Daddy

Aussie thesp Anthony Warlow has been tapped to play Daddy Warbucks in the upcoming Broadway revival of “Annie.”

Actor will appear in the Rialto incarnation opposite Katie Finneran as the scheming Miss Hannigan and Lilla Crawford as the titular moppet.

Warlow has appeared in both opera and in musical theater, including in “The Phantom of the Opera” in Oz.

James Lapine directs the new Gotham production of the 1977 musical by Charles Strouse, Martin Charnin and Thomas Meehan. Andy Blankenbuehler choreographs.

“Annie” begins previews Oct. 3 at the Palace Theater ahead of a Nov. 8 opening.
