...was Shelley Bruce ever considered to be Annie in the 1st National Co., or vice versa, was Kathy-Jo Kelly ever offered the role on Broadway?

According to Kathy, she was told by Martin that if she went on tour, she could take over the role on Broadway as soon as it became available. She said that when she reminded Martin of his promise, he told her that since she was such a success on tour, he wanted her to stay there. She was quite upset because she believed his promise and she wanted to return home to New York City and play the role on Broadway.

..Kathy-Jo must have been upset-too bad it wasn't a legally binding agreement. But how could it have happened anyhow when Shelley got a year-long contract, and by then KJK would be too big for the role ? At least she got to tour as Annie, but how disappointing. I wonder what Martin said about this...
