The original Annie in Los Angeles was actually Patricia Ann Patts. The show opened at the Shubert in 1978 after having played an engagement in San Francisco at the Curran Theatre with the same cast. The original L.A. production ran for over a year in Century City at the Shubert Theatre (which no longer exists). During this time (in 1979) Louanne replaced Patricia Ann Patts. By the way, the original LA cast was the 2nd National Touring Company. Louanne did return to L.A. in the role of ANNIE when the 1st National Touring Company played the Pantages Theatre in Los Angeles in 1981. During the run of the original Broadway production the only other L.A. Annie was Marisa Morell who played the title role when the 2nd National Touring Company played the Pasadena Civic Auditorium during the summer of 1980 for a brief engagement.

Oops, you are right. I was answering the question from my Blackberry and was in a rush. Yes, Patty Patts was the original LA Annie. There are videos of her and Louanne on this website, under 2nd National Tour.
