Philly birthday gal Andrea McArdle

Posted: October 31, 2011

BROADWAY'S ORIGINAL "Annie" belts a 48 not tomorrow, but Saturday. Oxford Circle native Andrea McArdle once wore a curly wig, palled around with a dog named Sandy and, at age 13, became the youngest Tony Award nominee ever. Back in the day, McArdle also graced the halls of Melrose Academy and laid out on the beaches of Ocean City. These days, she's based in New York. Her recent causes have included stumping for an African-American headliner for the Great White Way's 2012 revival of "Annie," and playing her one-time nemesis Miss Hannigan in repertory theater productions.

Wednesday, "Survivor: Borneo" star and Cinnaminson resident Gervase Peterson keeps his flame alive at 42, and wannabe buccaneer Pat Croce looks at 57. Thursday, Easton native and Heavyweight champ Larry Holmes left-jabs 62. Friday, WXPN morning host Michaela Majoun's word of the day is 63.
