Faith Prince to play evil Miss Hannigan in 'Annie'

NEW YORK (AP) — Faith Prince will soon be getting in touch with her mean side — she's about to play Miss Hannigan in the "Annie" revival on Broadway.

Prince, who will begin performances on July 19, won a Tony Award in 1992 for "Guys and Dolls" and was nominated three other times for "A Catered Affair," ''Bells Are Ringing" and "Jerome Robbins' Broadway."

Emmy Award-winning "Glee" star Jane Lynch will play her final performance as Miss Hannigan on July 14. She had taken over from Tony-winning Katie Finneran as the evil orphanage matron.

Prince will star opposite Lilla Crawford in the title role and Anthony Warlow as Daddy Warbucks. The musical has such gems as "Tomorrow" and "It's the Hard Knock Life."
