The 1946 Broadway Hit

Annie Get Your Gun is a musical with lyrics and music written by Irving Berlin and a book by Herbert Fields and his sister Dorothy Fields. The story is a fictionalized version of the life of Annie Oakley (1860-1926), who was a sharpshooter from Ohio, and her husband, Frank Butler.

The 1946 Broadway production was a hit, and the musical had long runs in both New York (1,147 performances) and London, spawning revivals, a 1950 film version and television versions. Songs that became hits include “There’s No Business Like Show Business”, “Doin’ What Comes Natur’lly”, “You Can’t Get a Man with a Gun”, “They Say It’s Wonderful”, and “Anything You Can Do.”

Annie Get Your Gun is about a local sharpshooter, Annie Oakley, who outduels the bull headed star of a traveling Buffalo Bill Wild West Show, Frank Butler. Annie falls in love with Frank instantly, and accepts an offer to join the show in order to be close to Frank, who does not share the same feelings for Annie.

Over the course of working together, Frank starts to fall for Annie, but when Annie becomes a star, Frank gets jealous and joins the rival show of Pawnee Bill. Both shows go broke. Annie and Frank reconcile, marry, and the shows merge.
