WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Female tenacity and ingenuity are personified in this classic Broadway musical about legendary sharpshooter Annie Oakley. Irving Berlin's "Annie Get Your Gun" features a fictionalized version of the life of Annie Oakley (1860-1926), recounting her show business career and competitive and romantic relationship with rival Frank Butler, the sharpshooting star of Buffalo Bill's "Wild West Show." "Annie Get Your Gun," which first opened in 1946, showcases the musicality and ingenuity of Irving Berlin, widely considered America's greatest songwriter - including "There's No Business Like Show Business," which has become the definitive show business anthem. This revised version of "Annie Get Your Gun" scored a bulls eye when it returned to Broadway in 1999, with an updated libretto by Peter Stone and Irving Berlin's amazing score.
