The cast of the Broadway musical Annie welcomed some very special visitors on November 2. Courageous former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and her astronaut husband Mark Kelly dropped by the Palace Theatre to take in Annie’s message of hope and optimism. (Giffords is continuing her inspiring recovery after having been shot in the head last year during a public appearance in her native Arizona.) Also making the scene backstage were Broadway luminaries Debra Monk and Victor Garber (Garber played Warbucks in the 1999 made-for-TV-movie adaptation of Annie), as well as the show's lyricist, Martin Charnin, and his actress wife Shelly Burch. Broadway.com was there to capture all the exciting photos.
