ANNIE GET YOUR GUN scored a bulls eye when it returned to Broadway in 1999, starring Bernadette Peters and sporting a revised libretto by Tony, Oscar and Emmy winner Peter Stone. As Newsday 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 and Frank 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. "The book has been updated in ways that pass p.c. muster," reported Time Magazine, "without losing all the fun."

Joined to the new book, of course, is that amazing Irving Berlin score, featuring hit after hit after hit. "Irving Berlin's greatest achievement in the theater," wrote the New York Post, ANNIE GET YOUR GUN "will always be a musical for the ages, one of the Broadway theater's enduring triumphs."

REVIEWS:

"The book has been updated in ways that pass P.C. muster, without losing all the fun."

Time Magazine

"The real star of ANNIE GET YOUR GUN-- in 1946, in 1999 and in 200 years-- is Berlin's music. Song after hum- it, whistle- it song."

Elyse Sommer CurtainUp

"Irving Berlin’s great musical comedy has one wonderful song after another."

Toby Zinman The Inquirer

“Irving Berlin's music is simply the most enchanting and distinguished complete score he ever wrote. Here we have his musical gems with dazzling new orchestrations by Bruce Coughlin. Herbert and Dorothy Fields' original book was pretty darn good to begin with. Peter Stone has dusted off the cobwebs of 50 years and provided a clear, revised book, chock-full of laughs, while always respecting the quality and integrity of the original.”

Fergus McGillicuddy TalkinBroadway.com

"The fixes are sweetly ingenious and the show's a dream."
