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. Daniel Fish's fresh new production is dark, sexy, funny, and terrifying all at the same time and it recently won the Tony Award for Best Musical Revival, meaning a West End transfer of Oklahoma! will certainly rake in the Olivier Awards if it ever finds a London home.
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.
