annie_get_your_gun.jpg

“Anna prendi il fucile” è un Musical con parole e musica del grande Irvin Berlin e soggetto di Herbert Field e della sorella Dorothy. La storia è una versione rivisitata della vita di Annie Oakley, provetta tiratrice nata in Ohio e di suo marito Frank Butler.

Berlin fu chiamato per sostituire Jerome Kern, morto improvvisamente.

Si dice che la canzone di apertura del Musical ” There’s no Businnes Like Show Business”, era stata quasi tolta dallo Spettacolo perchè Berlin, erroneamente, aveva avuto l’impressione che ai produttori Rodgers e Hammerstein, non piacesse. La produzione originale del 1946 fu un successo e andò avanti per parecchio tempo sia a New York che a Londra, ebbe molte riedizioni, ne fu tratto un film nel 1950 e anche delle versioni per la televisione.

Molte canzoni dello spettacolo diventarono brani di successo, come

“Doin’ What Comes Natur’lly”, “You Can’t Get A Man With A Gun”, “They Say It’s Wonderful”, “Anything You Can Do”.

Trama: Annie Oakley è una pistolera che batte Frank Butler, la Star dello Show “Buffalo Bill’s Wild West “, in una piccola gara e si innamora di lui. Annie diventa una grande Star come tiratrice, tanto da rubare la scena e la notorietà a Frank che è costretto a lasciare lo Show. Annie ha il cuore spezzato ma un giorno si incontrano di nuovo e si dichiarano il loro amore. Alla fine Frank mette da parte il suo orgoglio e decide di esibirsi in coppia con lei.

Annie Get Your Gun is a Musical with lyrics and music written by Irvin Berlin and a book by Herbert Fields and his sister Dorothy. 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.

Berlin had taken on the job after the original choice, Jerome Kern, died suddenly. It is said that the showstopper song, “There’s no Businnes Like Show Business”, was almost left out of the show altogether because Berlin, wrongly, got the impression that the producers, Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II did not like it. The original 1946 production was a hit and had long runs in both New York and London, spawning many revivals, a 1950 Film Version , and television versions. Other songs that became hits include “Doin’ What Comes Natur’lly”, “You Can’t Get A Man With A Gun”, “They Say It’s Wonderful”, “Anything You Can Do”.

Annie Oakley is a riflewomen who beats Frank Butler, the sharpshooting star of Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show, in a small contest and falls in love with him. She then becomes a huge star and steals the show from Frank causing him to run off. Annie is heartbroken until they meet again and both declare their love for each other. In the end, Frank sets his pride aside and forms a gun shooting partnership with Annie.
