There really is no Business like Show Business – and this revival of the Wild West Show-within-a- show demonstrates why.
Annie Get Your Gun tells the story of the hapless sharpshooter Annie Oakley and her rocky romance with shooting-ace Frank Butler. We follow Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show on tour and fall in love with this backstage story of life on the road and the trials and joys of show business. Of course Irving Berlin’s classic score cannot fail to thrill nearly six decades after first taking Broadway by storm.
Irving Berlin’s score include some of Broadway’s best known hits: There’s No Business Like Show Business, Doin’ What Comes Natur’lly, The Girl That I Marry, They Say It’s Wonderful, My Defences Are Down, I Got The Sun In The Morning, An Old Fashioned Wedding and Anything You Can Do.
