Irving Berlin (Composer)

Irving Berlin, the composer of the music and lyricist for Annie Get Your Gun, was born in Tyumen, Russia, on May 11, 1888, and immigrated to New York as a child. He would become one of the most popular songwriters in the United States, with hits like Alexander’s Ragtime Band, What’ll I Do, God Bless America, and White Christmas. His music forms a great part of the Great American Songbook.

Herbert & Dorothy Fields (Book Writers)

Herbert & Dorothy Fields are the brother and sister team who wrote the book for Annie Get Your Gun. Dorothy started writing songs for Tin Pan Alley and Broadway in the 1920s. From the 1930s on, Dorothy also worked for Hollywood with her partner, composer Jimmy McHugh. She won an Oscar for the song The Way You Look Tonight from Swing Time (1936), which she had written with Jerome Kern. Herbert was a writer and actor, known for Hit the Deck (1955), 50 Million Frenchmen (1931) and Joy of Living (1938). Dorothy and Herbert won two Tony Awards in 1959 for Redhead including Best Musical and shared the award for Best Book/Libretto with Sidney Sheldon and David Shaw.
