Reba Wows Broadway

Critics apparently love Reba McEntire in her Broadway turn as Annie Oakely in Annie Get Your Gun. A writer for The New York Times said of her performance, “Like Annie Oakley, she’s a nonchalant showoff, making a highly polished performance look so easy that you wonder why we aren’t all Broadway stars.” A New York Post critic weighs in that “McEntire just takes that gorgeous Irving Berlin score and Peter Stones’ version of the original book and runs happy circus rings around them … she is over the top funny.” McEntire will continue in her role at the Marquis Theater through the end of May.
