A runaway hit at TheatreWorks' New Works Festival, The Great Pretender now receives a fully staged world premiere at the Lucie Stern Theatre. In this comic tale of friendship, love and letting go, a children's TV host is consumed with the passing of a cherished puppeteer. Evoking the small-screen shows that shaped the childhoods of so many, The Great Pretender moves beyond the painted sets and colored lights to discover that people (as well as puppets) need a helping hand. TheatreWorks kick-starts its new season with this bittersweet comedy from David West Read (The Performers). Learn More

The show started a little slow but once the audience gave good feedback the actors perked up and showed us their stuff. The actress that played Annie Oakley was an outstanding actor we really loved her.However,she could have had a little more control in her singing voice. Overall her performance was charming. The actor that played Frank Butler was a little stiff on stage but when he began singing it gave me goosebumps. There was an exceptional dancer in the chorus (tall one in indian dance) that I focused on everytime she was on stage. Jayne Zaban did a great job with the choreography. Full of energy! Go see it. I might go again.

We always enjoy Broadway-By-The-Bay productions, and this "Annie" was excellent, from the smallest cast member to the fine leads. The orchestra is always first rate, as are the stage direction and choreography. BBB is a Bay Area treasure!
When Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show comes into town, Annie Oakley quickly falls in love with the show’s sharpshooter, Frank Butler. Annie, an amazing sharpshooter herself, joins the show so she can win Frank’s heart. Annie soon realizes Frank is not interested in a tomboy, gun-toting dame—a woman who can beat him at his own game. Filled with familiar songs such as “Anything You Can Do,” “Doin’ What Comes Naturally” and “There’s No Business Like Show Business,” Annie Get Your Gun is ultimately about learning the true meaning of love.
