THE SCREENING ROOM: Celebrating the Tony-Winning Musical Annie Get Your Gun (Video)
04 Mar 2013
The 1999 Broadway revival of Annie Get Your Gun, starring Tony winner Bernadette Peters as Annie Oakley, opened March 4, 1999, at the Marquis Theatre. In honor of the show, Playbill.com has put together various performances from the musical.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
