The story of Annie Oakley is a truly remarkable one. For a Victorian woman to become a sharpshooter, (let alone the best in the world!) was an extraordinary achievement. Annie’s great skill, combined with her charming nature made her one of the best-loved Wild West characters of all time. That the real Annie Oakley was also a great philanthropist, a champion of women’s rights and a strong supporter of the Indigenous Americans makes her even more remarkable. At a time when women were viewed as chattels, and native Americans as a scourge, Annie Oakley broke all taboos, shot her way to financial independence and was adopted by the great Sioux Indian chief Sitting Bull. Was ever there a more deserving leading lady for a musical?
Joined to the new book in this 1999 Stone Revision, of course, is that amazing Irving Berlin score, featuring hit after hit after hit, including ‘There’s No Business Like Show Business’ and ‘Doin’ What Comes Naturally’.
Irving Berlin’s greatest achievement in the theatre” wrote the New York Post, ANNIE GET YOUR GUN “will always be a musical for the ages, one of the Broadway theatre’s enduring triumphs.”
