Annie Get Your Gun - by Dorothy Fields

Annie Get Your Gun by Dorothy Fields Herbert Fields

(Applause Libretto Library). Broadway's biggest musical comedy hit of the 1940s, this was one for the ages and built by a "dream team" songwriter Irving Berlin, librettists Dorothy and Herbert Fields, producers Rodgers & Hammerstein, and star Ethel Merman telling the improbable but true story of sharpshooter Annie Oakley. A staple of the touring and summer stock circuit for years, Annie Get Your Gun kept hitting bull's-eyes, with a film version, two television productions, and thousands of stage revivals over the years. This book presents, for the first time in print, the original libretto. Included are essays describing the fascinating history of the musical's productions, right up to the Tony Award-winning 1999 revival starring Bernadette Peters and then in 2001, in a star-blazing Broadway debut, Reba McEntire.
