Annie Get Your Gun

Last night we went to Raleigh Memorial Auditorium and saw the opening (“student”) night of “Annie Get Your Gun”, starring Larry Gatlin, who is apparently some big name in country music, and Raleigh-born Lauren Kennedy who we last saw as Lady Of The Lake in Spamalot when we went to NYC two years ago (btw, Spamalot is coming to Raleigh in April, but the Lady will be played by someone else).
It was fun (a couple of minor glitches that they skillfully masked or played for laughs, the biggest being when Larry forgot his line in one of the songs and Lauren saved him by singing them for him without missing a beat and he recovered with the next line – some of the kids in the audience probably never knew that this was not how it was supposed to go).
Lauren has so much energy and a great presence on stage – she makes it look easy and fun. And of course, they both sing phenomenally.
