Seventy-five years after Rodgers & Hammerstein reinvented the American musical, this is Oklahoma! As you’ve never seen or heard it before, reorchestrated and reimagined for the 21st century. Stripped down to reveal the darker psychological truths at its core, the New Yorker writes that “Daniel Fish’s vivid, stripped-down revival, at St. Ann’s Warehouse (first developed at Bard’s Fisher Center, in 2015), similarly offers audiences a vision of themselves. Seventy-five years ago, we were at war with foreign powers; now the enemy is within.”
The interior of the Circle in the Square will be repurposed as a community hall for the production, which coincides with the iconic Rodgers & Hammerstein musical’s 75th anniversary.
