Oklahoma : About The Show
Oklahoma! is the hottest musical on Broadway currently and has won the Tony Award 2019 for Best Revival of Musical and Best Featured Actress for Ali Stroker’s explosive performance. The musical originally premiered in 1943 has swept awards for every production and also a won a Special Pulitzer Award in 1944. This production is directed by Daniel Fish who is debuting on Broadway but has done extensive work Off-Broadway.
Oklahoma! uses the classic music and lyrics by the duo Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II. Not much has changed in the musical in words, but Fish has managed to bring out the core themes of sex, violence, and politics in this truly American story. It’s been 76 years since the musical premiered but it has remained relevant thanks to these themes that still draw debates and spark conversations in America.
Ali Stroker steals the spotlight as Ado Annie and is the first actress on Broadway to use a wheelchair for mobility. She is supported by a talented cast of actors including Rebecca Naomi Jones, Patrick Vaill, Damon Daunno and supported by Will Brill, Anthony Cason, James Davis, and Will Mann. The previous productions have been replete with magnificent sets and costumes but it’s the simplicity of this production that sets it apart from others. The costumes by Terese Wadden, lighting design by Scott Zielinski, and scenic design by Laura Jellinek have brought undertones to the stage that even words cannot!
Oklahoma : Broadway Story
It’s 1906 in Oklahoma and the landscape is picturesque with fertile farms and the prairie run by boisterous cowboys. Curly McLain is a cowboy who is trying his best to woo the farm girl Laurey Williams. She thwarts his attempts at asking her out for the box social night because she feels he waited too long and instead decides to go with a loner and mentally disturbed farmhand Jud Fry.
The box social night is a big deal out in the town as men get to auction on lunch dates with women, in order to raise funds for a schoolhouse. Will Parker is another cowboy who wishes to bid on the basket of his sweetheart Ado Annie but is running short on funds. He also wishes to marry her but her father has a ‘$50’ dowry on her. Meanwhile, Ado Annie is conflicted as she is in love with both Will and Ali Hakim.
Ali Hakim is a peddler of potions and knick knacks and has no intention of marrying Ado Annie and decides to give Will the money to marry her. He also gives Laurey a potion to help her decide who the right man for her is – Curly or Jud. Things start taking a gruesome turn as Curly and Jud get into a fight for Laurey and Jud decides he wants her at any cost.
