Show Down is a contemporary dance show based upon Irving Berlins Annie Get Your Gun. It is performed by The Bang Group from New York, five men and three women, and introduced by David Parker.The film version of Annie Get Your Gun was originally to star Judy Garland. However, she became ill part way through the recording, was unable to finish it and had to be replaced. The songs which she had already sung and recorded had never been made available to the public but have recently been released and it was these recordings that are being used for this production.The dances are not meant to relate directly to the action in the musical, but are free association. The dancers are dressed in western-style checked shirts and denim jeans, appropriate for the period. They perform mostly in groups of two or three but sometimes dance solo and often the entire company is on stage at the same time. The dancers are very skilled and well-choreographed. The first song in the show is an unaccompanied version of Theres No Business Like Show Business, sung by Ethel Merman. It is finished by a performance of Old-fashioned Wedding, which was written by Irving Berlin for the 1966 revival of the musical. This is sung and danced by David Parker and one other cast member and provides a very satisfying finale.This production should appeal to anyone who likes musicals, dance or Judy Garland.
