In 1946 the Irving Berlin musical, Annie Get Your Gun, opened at New York’s Imperial Theatre. Once of the most successful shows presented on a Broadway stage, the show ran for 1,147 performances. Last night the Civic Light Opera of the South Bay presented the show and Victoria Strong filled in at the last minute for the star of the show who came down with laryngitis, and she certainly did fill the stage. The audience gave her a standing ovation for a magnificent performance. It's a wonderful show. If you get a chance -- see it!
