Critics can’t get enough of this rendition of the classic play. Reimagined for the modern day with cowboys and cowgirls you could imagine standing in line next to at the grocery store, New York Magazine says, “The bright golden haze on the meadow has never looked so ominous, or so theatrically exhilarating… this is the Oklahoma! that was there all along!” Time Magazine called it the “#1 Theatrical Event of the Year” and the New York Times claimed, “Thrilling and audacious. This has always been a very American story, but has never felt like so much of one until now.”
These reviews combined with winning Tonys, Drama Desks, and even Pulitzer Prizes throughout the show’s many productions throughout the years combine to ensure that you will adore Oklahoma! and especially this production of it.
History of the Show
Oklahoma! is noted for being the first successful musical to have music that corresponded to and moved along the storyline. Prior to this, “musicals” were a mix of acting combined with singing and dancing that might have a variety of different themes. Rodgers and Hammerstein’s breakthrough concept with Oklahoma! – having songs about love or frustration or injustice that directly corresponded to the story of Laurey and her friends – set the stage for the next 70+ years of musicals which combine music and acting to tell stories. Playwright Thomas Hischak called it, “the single most influential work in the American musical theatre.”
After a wildly successful record-breaking five-year run on Broadway from 1943-1948, the show has been produced in the UK, in Japan, and in various revivals in the US. It even inspired the 1955 Academy-Award winning film of the same name in 1955.
Oklahoma! performances take place in the exciting Circle in the Square Theater. Here, the graded seating that completely encircles the small stage in the center means that there are literally no bad seats and you’ll never get stuck looking at the back of someone’s head instead of the stage.
That being said, if you’re a fan of being able to stretch your legs, reserve seats in Row A. And if you’re looking for the best value for your money, reserve the Center Orchestra section, Rows H or K.
