#1 Theatrical Event of 2018
– TIME Magazine
“Fish’s excavation of Oklahoma! is essential viewing. Intoxicating and thrilling, you’ll never look at this classic the same way again.”
– David Gordon, Theatermania
Direct from an acclaimed, sold-out run at St. Ann’s Warehouse, the Bard SummerScape revival production of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Oklahoma! transfers to Broadway’s Circle in the Square Theatre. Directed by Daniel Fish, the production has been hailed as the Best of the Year and a Critic’s Pick by The New York Times, the #1 Theatrical Event of the Year by Time Magazine, and has been cited on numerous Best of the Year lists including New York Times, Time Magazine, Time Out NY, New York Magazine’s Vulture, The New Yorker, Buzzfeed, Newsday, NY Daily News, and Theatermania.
Seventy-five years after Rodgers & Hammerstein reinvented the American musical, this is Oklahoma! as you’ve never seen or heard it before, re-orchestrated and reimagined for the 21st century as it 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 an outsider. Oklahoma! feels as fresh and as revelatory as if written for today’s America. (The New York Times)
