I Can Do Anything Better Than You

Something that is awesome about Annie Get Your Gun: the music. Irving Berlin’s original songs are some of the most enduring in Broadway. Even if you’ve never seen the show, you know most of the songs: “Anything You Can Do,” “They Say It’s Wonderful” and “There’s No Business Like Show Business” are still massive pop-culture players close to 70 years out from the original production. Something that is not awesome about Annie Get Your Gun: Well, in the interest of not spoiling the ending for first timers, we’ll just say that it’s not exactly brimming with feminist life lessons. But that’s ok, consider it a teachable moment: “Honey, I know that in the show Annie dumbed herself down for a dude, but in real life she was a total lady-rebel.” Then buy the soundtrack. Lyric Stage puts on its production of Annie Get Your Gun at the Irving Arts Center (3333 North MacArthur Boulevard, Irving) at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and 2:30 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $25 to $53 at irvingartscenter.com.
Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Sun., Jan. 25, 2:30 p.m. Starts: Jan. 23. Continues through Jan. 24, 2015
