#ThrowBackThursday – Annie Get Your Gun

Each Thursday, #ThrowbackThursday brings you another memorable moment from Broadway’s past!

This week, we rewind the clock to September of 1966.

  • The first revival of Annie Get Your Gun opened at the Broadway Theatre on September 21st, 1966.
  • The show ran for only 78 performances before closing on November 26th.
  • At the 1981 Tony Awards, it was nominated for two Tony Awards.  Before 1966, the award for Best Revival of a Musical was not given out.
  • Annie Get Your Gun saw Ethel Merman return to one of her most iconic roles, Annie Oakley.  The show also starred Jerry Orbach (seen in last week’s #tbt, 42nd Street).

Below, check out Ethel Merman and the cast of Annie Get Your Gun singing “I’ve Got The Sun In The Morning” on the Ed Sullivan Show!
