Show Description

After a sold-out, critically acclaimed run at St. Ann’s Warehouse, Oklahoma! comes to Broadway for a strictly limited engagement.

Seventy-five years after Rodgers & Hammerstein reinvented the American musical, this is Oklahoma! as you’ve never seen or heard it before, reorchestrated and 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 violence of the frontier that shaped America.

Upending the sunny romance of a farmer and a cowpoke, this Oklahoma! is “thrilling, audacious, and delightful. A rollicking good time" (The New York Times)

NYT Critic's Pick

The performances are looser and bigger; they’re Broadway-size now, with all the infectious exuberance you expect from a great musical. Making his Broadway debut as a director, Mr. Fish has reconceived a work often seen as a byword for can-do optimism as a mirror for our age of doubt and anxiety. This is “Oklahoma!” for an era in which longstanding American legacies are being examined with newly skeptical eyes.

Presented Off Broadway at Brooklyn’s St. Ann’s Warehouse last fall, Fish’s stunning revival, with its country & western musical stylings, rockabilly cats, chili at intermission and blood on the tracks, has found its perfect Broadway home at the in-the-round Circle. With the house lights turned up through most of the running time – when darkness occasionally enters, it’s total – Oklahoma! has us all at the barn dance. Everyone is complicit.

The production has gotten fuller, freer, and funnier in its Broadway transfer. Its remarkable actors — especially Damon Daunno’s cocky, come-hither Curly McClain and James Davis’s ebullient, a-couple-knots-short-of-a-lasso Will Parker — feel loose, confidant, and playful, as if they’re all taking deeper breaths and, consequently, greater risks. At St. Ann’s Warehouse, the performances had a veneer of experimental coolness, a dry, distanced note in the delivery, as if the actors were standing a little apart from their characters and, along with the audience, observing these familiar figures they’d been given to play. Though that sense of comment remains — and Mary Testa and Rebecca Naomi Jones continue to make the most of it as a wry, ruthless Aunt Eller and a Laurey flush with intense, reserved desire — the characters’ humanity now feels as present and comprehensive as the director’s style.
