Annie Get Your Gun

Drawing on authentic photos and coloring books of the late 1800s, a painterly evocation of Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show provides a richly detailed framework for this vintage show. Although this package was created for a large-cast version of the 1966 revival script (“Lincoln Center version”), it can also be used for the rewritten 1999 Broadway revival.

Scenery

Bruce Brockman’s sets for Annie Get Your Gun look like vintage Wild West posters come to life, with an intentional 2-dimensional, painterly quality. Compact and cleverly designed, all the locations in the sprawling story are effectively covered, including an exciting ride for Annie on a trick pony. Sitting Bull’s tribal environment is also included in this version, although the “I’m an Indian, Too” number and ceremonial dance are not performed in all versions of the show.
