BTW, comic villains seem to be common in musicals. Miss Hannigan , the orphanage matron in Annie , who could be an Irish, or Irish-American, stereotype , drunk, abusive, and her surname is Irish. Also, in the movie, she says "Mary, mother of God!", which is often associated with Catholic characters in fiction.
