The key to a musical revival is ultimately the songs and the story: are the tunes holding up and will modern audiences swallow or understand the book? In the case of ANNIE GET YOUR GUN, generally thought to be Irving Berlin's finest Broadway moment, the answer turns out--after minimal tweaking and updating--to be a resounding "Yes!" In a fearless star-turn--no less a legend than Ethel Merman created the original role--Bernadette Peters brings her own perky, less brassy personality to the table in this 1999 production. Several of the tracks here are bona fide American standards, including the show-stopper "There's No Business Like Show Business" and the enchanting ballad "They Say It's Wonderful." Though as one might expect, Frank Butler and Annie Oakley do wind up together in the end, there's plenty of tension along the way to the happy ending, as reflected in this Berlin couplet: "But a man never trifles / with gals who carry rifles."
