OKLAHOMA!, the first collaboration of famed partners, Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II, set the American musical theatre standard. Set in Western Indian Territory in the early 1900’s, the spirited rivalry between the local farmers and cowboys provides the backdrop for the love story between Curly, a cowboy, and Laurey, a farm girl. The road to true love is as bumpy as a surrey ride down a country road. OKLAHOMA! opened at the St. James Theatre on Broadway on March 31, 1943. At that time, the longest running show in Broadway history had run for three years. OKLAHOMA! surpassed that record by two more years, running for a marathon 2,212 performances.
Oklahoma! is produced in cooperation with R&H Theatricals, 229 W. 38th St. 11th Floor New York, NY 10001.
