Interview: Tituss Burgess Talks ‘Annie Live!’, Working On A Live Show & More
Annie Live! is on its way to a TV near you and what better way than to usher in this new remake of a classic than to interview some of the insanely talented cast!
I was lucky enough to sit down and have a chat with Tituss Burgess who portrays Rooster Hannigan in the upcoming live event. Burgess shared his first experience with the Annie musical (featuring Carol Burnett as Miss Hannigan), what it was like lending his musical talents to the role of Rooster, what iconic movie he would like see get its own musical and much more.

About Annie Live!
“The Sun’ll Come Out Tomorrow” this holiday season as NBC has found its next live musical event: the beloved seven-time Tony Award-winning hit Annie Live!
Annie Live! features Academy Award-nominated actress Taraji P. Henson as the musical’s infamous queen of mean, Miss Hannigan. Henson will play opposite Celina Smith in the titular role of Annie. Already a triple threat at the age of 12, Smith was selected in a nationwide casting search and can currently be seen on the series Tyler Perry’s Young Dylan.
The holiday musical event also features Tituss Burgess as Rooster Hannigan, Megan Hilty as Lily St. Regis, Harry Connick Jr. as Daddy Warbucks and Nicole Scherzinger as Grace.
