About the Oklahoma! Broadway musical
Rodgers & Hammerstein famously invented the American musical with Oklahoma! over 75 years ago! Now this is Oklahoma! like you've never seen it before, reimagined for a whole new generation of theatregoers in the 21st century without changing a single word of the text. Daniel Fish's fresh new production is dark, sexy, funny, and riveting all at the same time and it recently won the Tony Award for Best Musical Revival, meaning the West End transfer of Oklahoma! is certain to cause Olivier buzz.
Oklahoma! musical plot
The stripped-down revival of Oklahoma! speaks on the violence of the great frontier that shaped American society. It follows a community circling its wagons against an unwanted outsider. Turning cliches of a cowpoke and farmer romance on its head, Oklahoma! is a classic musical that harkens back to a different period in the United States that allows us to see a different side of this vast region united by the red, white and blue.
Oklahoma! creative team
The Bard Summerscape production of Rodgers and Hammerstein's Oklahoma! musical features music by Richard Rodgers, an original book and lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II, original choreography by Agnes de Mille, orchestrations and arrangements and music supervision by Daniel Kluger, choreography by John Heginbotham, scenic design by Laura Jellinek, costume design by Terese Wadden, lighting design by Scott Zielinski, sound design by Drew Levy, projection design by Joshua Thorson, and music direction and additional vocal arrangements by Nathan Koci.
