    Synopsis: 

    Inspired by the exploitation movies of the 1970s (think Shaft or Enter the Dragon), this exciting new musical follows a 60-ish-year-old, down-on-her-luck actor Annie (starring Annie Golden) as she’s asked to become a bounty hunter and capture a South American drug lord. With a score rich with R&B and Funk (and a splash of ‘80s Rock ‘n’ Roll), the musical follows a woman of a certain age as she tries to find the inner strength she needs to save theatre and realize her true badass identity. Pure, unadulterated fun.

    'Broadway Bounty Hunter' Stars Annie Golden As Herself

    Charles Isherwood

    August 23, 2016: Try to top this for typecasting: The daffy, adorable Annie Golden plays, yes, the daffy, adorable Annie Golden in “Broadway Bounty Hunter,” a sweet if slight goof of a musical, making its premiere at Barrington Stage Company here. The show, featuring songs by Joe Iconis and a book by Mr. Iconis, Lance Rubin and Jason SweetTooth Williams, turns on a willfully silly conceit. An out-of-work actor — that’s Annie as Annie — pursues a second career as a vigilante chasing down dangerous criminals. Powered by a silky retro-R&B score, the musical delights with its loopy idea for longer than you might expect, but as the plot sprouts more absurdities, it ultimately begins to feel like an overextended “Saturday Night Live” sketch (albeit a good one).
