Recent Head Over Heels cast member Alexandra Socha, who also created the role of Medium Alison in the Public Theater world premiere of Fun Home, will star as sharp shooter Annie Oakley opposite Matt Saldivar (Bernhardt/Hamlet, Honeymoon in Vegas) as as Frank Butler in Bay Street Theater's upcoming mainstage production of Annie Get Your Gun. Performances will run July 30–August 25 at the Sag Harbor, New York, venue.
Sarna Lapine, director of the London-bound revival of Sunday in the Park With George, will direct the new production of the Irving Berlin classic, which incorporates elements from book writer Dorothy Fields’ original script to approach Oakley's story as a female trailblazer in a modern way.
The 1946 musical features music and lyrics by Berlin, with a book co-written by Dorothy and Herbert Fields.
