BWW Review: Lack of Chemistry Causes ANNIE GET YOUR GUN to Miss the TargetBWW Review: Lack of Chemistry Causes ANNIE GET YOUR GUN to Miss the Target

Without two solid leads who really appear to be in love, or at least attracted to each other physically, the musical lacks the spark needed to fuel the plot. (more...)
