NEW YORK (AP) — It's hard-knock life on Broadway — the revival of "Annie" is set to close in January.

Producers said Thursday that the show will have its final performance on Jan. 5 at the Palace Theater. It will have played 487 performances and 38 previews. But a national tour is planned for the 2014-2015 season.

Based on the beloved comic strip that debuted in 1924, "Annie" first opened on Broadway in 1977 and ran for almost six years, fueled by songs including "It's the Hard-Knock Life" and "Tomorrow."

The revival's box office numbers were usually decent, without being fantastic. Last week, the show only pulled in half of its potential revenue — $720,823 from a possible $1,398,648. The show got only one Tony Award nomination, for best musical revival.
