OH! WHAT A BEAUTIFUL REVIVAL

On sale January 5, 2019

Beautiful mornings beckon once more for Bard SummerStage's highly acclaimed interpretation of Roger's and Hammerstein's quintessential 1943 American musical, Oklahoma! Following sold-out engagements at St. Ann's Warehouse, this production configured for today's America will enjoy a Broadway bow in spring 2019, marking the show's first main stem return since 2002. Although recognizable as the beloved and influential show, director Daniel Fish and team have approached the musical with a fresh vision, examining the darker themes that roil below the surface of the romance and innocence of the original, whilst still retaining the optimism and timelessness of the early American Dream in a confection that zings with vibrancy and topicality more now than ever.

Stripped back, with new choreography by John Heginbotham and orchestrations and music from Daniel Kluger, this Oklahoma! invites the audience to immerse themselves in the story further than ever before, presenting the scene as a local jamboree where the narrative unfolds. A seven-piece band provides the music, allowing Rogers and Hammerstein's wit, talent and fundamental understanding of human nature to shine. Likely to repeat it's Off-Broadway success, this exciting and intriguing transfer is sure to be one of the season's must-see highlights.

The story of Oklahoma!

An upcoming box social is stirring strong emotions among the population of a small (pre-statehood) Oklahoma town in the early 1900s. Curly McLain has asked farm girl Laurey to accompany him but she has refused, instead accepting the invitation of the mysterious and sinister farmhand Jud Fry. Laurie's friend Ado Annie is going with her boyfriend Will Parker, but while he's been away she has been seen flirting with Persian pedlar Ali Hakim. On the night of the social, matters come to a head, in a whirlwind of passion, rivalry, jealousy, and fighting. 

A genre-defining classic that is constantly revived, don't miss this reimagining from an innovative and visionary company.

Cranston's wrenching performance stands on its own. In context, it's a terrifying reminder of how an all-too-human, anger-filled public figure, with access to a worldwide stage, can be mistaken for a god.

Such a joyful hoot. With its kinetic dancing, broad mugging and belty anthems, it makes you believe in musical comedy again.
