It makes perfect sense -- take a musical whose most famous song is "There's No Business Like Show Business" and accentuate the show-biz angle. In revising the 1946 Irving Berlin classic "Annie Get Your Gun" -- currently playing a pre-Broadway run at Washington's Kennedy Center -- librettist Peter Stone has turned the original plot into a play-within-a-play. This isn't the only improvement in the revival, which stars Bernadette Peters as an adorably spunky, love-struck but hard-headed Annie Oakley (and one who is not only in excellent voice, but performs a remarkably athletic stunt just before intermission)

Tomorrow, an upbeat article of Americana opens at Anne Arundel Community College's Pascal Center for the Performing Arts when Moonlight Troupers' 25-member cast brings history to life in Irving Berlin's Annie, Get Your Gun. The musical tells the story of Annie Oakley, the sharp-shooting country girl who joined Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show and became famous for her marksmanship, beating vaudevillian-sharpshooter Frank Butler in competition. If those three characters are legends, so is Berlin.

Viggo Mortensen, newly crowned matinee idol thanks to his hunky turn as Aragorn in The Lord of the Rings, steps out from the shadows of Mordor for his first post-Rings star turn, in Hidalgo. And on what does he spend his clout? A B-movie, a corny, old-fashioned horse opera. Hidalgo is a Disney Western about a man, a Bedouin princess, a femme fatale and a painted horse. And a race across about 3,000 miles of Arabian desert, circa 1890. Mortensen plays Frank T. Hopkins, a U.S. Cavalry courier and long-distance horse racer rescued from a life of touring with Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show by sheiks with an eye for competition.

Holly Pasciullo makes a perky Annie Oakley in the Cockpit in the Court production of ''Annie Get Your Gun.'' Actually, everything about the show is perky, thanks to a very capable cast and the more than capable direction of Todd Pearthree, who also did the choreography.The dancing is rather elaborate for the Cockpit in the Court, but Pearthree manages very well with an accomplished group of young men and women.''Annie Get Your Gun'' was first presented in New York in 1946, where it ran for 1,147 performances.
