Mike Nichols came to the last performance of ANNIE at Goodspeed and became the producer. According to the new Nichols biography, Martin Charnin resisted that change because he felt everyone would assume Nichols was the de facto director. He DID bring in his friend, Dorothy Loudon to play Miss Hannigan. Loudon had been the highlight of a number of Broadway failures. She was well known within the community but hardly "a star". Apparently, she lobbied for a second act number which then became Easy Street. That number really sealed the deal for her getting a Tony .
