    Rodgers & Hammerstein’s



    Oklahoma! opened on Broadway on March 31, 1943, 75 years ago.  Rodgers & Hammerstein’s first collaboration, this show is a recognized landmark in the evolution of the American Musical Theater, and established new expectations for musicals that were followed for decades and are still familiar today.  It was not only revolutionary in the way it fused story, songs, and dance, but it also introduced the choreography of Agnes DeMille’s Dream Ballet to reveal the hidden desires and fears of the principal characters.  Oklahoma is an absolute must-see for musical theater lovers.


    Set in a Western territory just after the turn of the 20th century, the high-spirited rivalry between the local farmers and cowboys provides the colorful background against which Curly, a handsome cowboy, and Laurey, a headstrong farm girl, play out their love story.  The scary ranch hand, Jud, the amendable girlfriend Ado Annie and her two admirers, Will Parker and Ali Hakim, and a cast of other interesting characters come together for an exciting plot that ends with a wedding and a brand new state!


    Rodgers and Hammerstein’s first collaboration is also one of their most memorable scores, with songs like “Oh What A Beautiful Morning,” “Surrey With the Fringe On Top,” “People Will Say We’re In Love,” “Kansas City,” and the triumphant title song, “Oklahoma!”
