PART OF THE GERMANIA INSURANCE BROADWAY SERIES, PRESENTED BY DALLAS SUMMER MUSICALS
Over 75 years after Rodgers & Hammerstein reinvented the American musical, this is OKLAHOMA! as you’ve never seen or heard it before – reimagined for the 21st century.
Stripped down to reveal the darker psychological truths at its core, Daniel Fish’s production tells a story of a community circling its wagons against an outsider, and the frontier life that shaped America. Upending the sunny romance of a farmer and a cowpoke, this OKLAHOMA! allows the classic musical – and our country – to be seen in a whole new light.
Funny and sexy, dark and jolting, “this is the OKLAHOMA! that was there all along.” (New York Magazine) The Daily Beast says “Forget your traditional idea of Oklahoma! Daniel Fish’s daring, brilliant, utterly absorbing re-interpretation is dark and different—brilliantly so.”
Please Note: Due to mature content in this production, it is recommended for children ages 12 and up.
This production contains fog, loud gunshot effects, moments of darkness, and violence.
Run Time: 2 hours and 45 minutes with 1 intermission
“How is it that the coolest new show on Broadway is a 1943 musical?” – The New York Times
“The fascinatingly radical Oklahoma! revival betokens an exciting new variation on presenting the work of Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II, the kings of early musical drama.” – Washington Post
“This vivid, stripped-down revival offers audiences a new vision of themselves. This Oklahoma! is a textbook illustration of how to revisit a classic while honoring it.” -The New Yorker
