Photo Flash: First Look at Beth Malone, Steve Blanchard and More in SDMT's ANNIE GET YOUR GUN
San Diego Musical Theatre presents Irving Berlin's ANNIE GET YOUR GUN, which opened last Saturday, May 10, at the North Park Theatre. Performances continue weekends through May 25. BroadwayWorld has a first look below!
ANNIE GET YOUR GUN scored a bull's eye when it returned to Broadway in 1999, starring Berna- dette Peters and sporting a revised libretto by Tony, Oscar and Emmy winner Peter Stone. As News- day reported, Stone's revisions 'are sweetly ingenious, and the show is a dream.' Stone reshaped the 1946 book to create a Wild West show-within-a-show that frames the ageless 'Anything You Can Do I Can Do Better' love story of sharpshooters Annie Oakley andFrank Butler. Stone has added a secondary romance between the younger sister of Frank's bothersome assistant Dolly, and a boy who is (to Dolly's horror) part Native American'. Joined to the new book, of course, is that amazingIrving Berlin score, featuring hit after hit after hit.
The creative team features: John Todd (Director/Choreographer), Don Le Master (Music Director), Matthew Novotny (Lighting Designer), Janet Pitcher (Costume Co-Ordinator), and Megan Sprowls* (Stage Manager).
