We are all familiar with the old western and names such as Billy the Kid, but in Annie Get Your Gun, we hear the story of the legendary Annie Oakley, Frank Butler, Sitting Bull and Buffalo Bill who all had their part of the Wild West Show.
In the show we get to know Annie, an odd character that through a shooting match against Frank Butler will be a big shining star. It is not a straightforward and easy way to the top which Annie soon comes to discover. When she falls for Frank, trouble in paradise isnt the only problem she got to face, but its also means troubles in the show. With humorous numbers like You Cant Get A Man With A Gun and Anything You Can Do I Can Do Better, this is a delightful performance that makes everyone that leaves the theatre to leave with big smiles on their faces.
I came in contact with this musical not so long ago. I saw the movie and immediately fell for the fantastic music and the joy it brings. It is with humor and warmth that Betty Hutton told the story of Annie Oakley. The production at Crucible Theatre in Sheffield was incredibly good, and honestly I did not believe that I could fall more inlove with this musical but I was wrong. Anna-Jane Casey and Ben Lewis really does a great job as Annie and Frank. But the whole Cast and the team behind this production is worth a standing ovation. What can I say really? If you get the chance to see it, do not hesitate one second, buy the ticket as fast as you can
Annie Get Your Gun shows until 21 January 2017.
