Oklahoma! returns to Broadway!
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 violence of the frontier that shaped America.
“How is it that the coolest new show on Broadway is a 1943 musical?” (The New York Times)
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. “This production shocked and moved me,” raves Frank Rich of New York Magazine. “Forget your traditional idea of Oklahoma! Daniel Fish’s daring, brilliant, utterly absorbing re-interpretation is dark and different—brilliantly so.” (The Daily Beast) “An audacious, sexy, upending ride” (NY1) that’s “as stimulating and jolting – and as fresh – as last night’s fever dream. Oklahoma! is astonishing.” (The New York Times)
Don’t miss the #1 Theatrical Event of the Year (Time Magazine, 2018) and “the hottest ticket in town.” (Town & Country) Now playing in Broadway’s most intimate theater, Circle in the Square.
