Composer Irving Berlin conceived “Annie Get Your Gun” — a fictionalized account of sharpshooter Annie Oakley — for the Broadway stage in 1946.
“Annie Get Your Gun” is a romp about the romance between Annie and Frank Butler, the heartthrob in Buffalo Bill’s Wild West show.
The original production played for more than 1,100 performances, and codified the songs “There’s No Business Like Show Business” and “Anything You Can Do I Can Do Better” in the Great American Songbook. The local staging spins off of the successful 1999 Broadway revival.
