"When Sarna Lapine first told me about her concept for this new production of Annie Get Your Gun, I immediately knew it was the perfect musical for Bay Street in 2019," says Artistic Director Scott Schwartz, "Sarna has assembled a staging and design team comprised of all women to retell this classic musical from a strong, contemporary woman's perspective. This includes incorporating elements of Dorothy Fields's original script. This team will bring a progressive and daring new perspective to this classic story. A great score, brilliant artists, and a visionary new production promise that Annie Get Your Gun will be the must-see musical on the East End this summer!" Irving Berlin's ANNIE GET YOUR GUN is one of the most beloved musicals of Broadway's Golden Age. It tells the story of sharpshooter Annie Oakley (Alexandra Socha), who starred in Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show, and her tempestuous romance with fellow sharpshooter Frank Butler (Matt Saldivar). Acclaimed director Sarna Lapine will bring a fresh, modern approach to the story, incorporating elements from Dorothy Fields' original book to create the strongest and most revolutionary Annie Oakley ever seen.
