Oklahoma!

Just in time for the 75th anniversary of its wartime premiere, Oklahoma! resurfaces as a fresh and daring new work with a seven-piece band playing all new arrangements of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s beloved classics. Set in the Territory of Oklahoma on the verge of becoming a state, director Daniel Fish’s timely production upends the sunny romance between a farmer and a cowpoke with "what has always been just below the surface of this magnificent musical" - the darker psychological truths of a community circling the wagons against a reviled outsider.

St. Ann's Warehouse and Eva Price have extended the celebrated Bard SummerScape production of Rodgers & Hammerstein's Oklahoma, directed byDaniel Fish, to November 11. Reviewing this re-imagined Oklahoma! for the New York Times in 2015, Ben Brantley said that it 'elicits what has always been just below the surface of this magnificent musical.' Now bringing audiences and artists together in this production under the vast canopy of St. Ann's Warehouse, Fish illuminates the musical form's essentials to better expose the show's emotional range and layered characters. The result is a production as fresh and revelatory as if it were written for today's America.
