Eva Price, Sonia Friedman Productions and Michael Harrison in association with the Young Vic theatre have confirmed the West End transfer of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s musical.
It has been confirmed that the critically acclaimed production of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s musical will transfer to the Wyndham’s Theatre in 2023, opening in February. Casting for the transfer has yet to be announced.
Reimagined for the stage by Daniel Fish, the production played a sold-out run at the Young Vic earlier this year, having previously transferred to Broadway from St. Ann’s Warehouse winning the Tony Award for Best Musical Revival.
OKLAHOMA! tells a story of a community banding together against an outsider, and the frontier life that shaped America. Eighty years after Rodgers & Hammerstein reinvented the American musical, this visionary production is funny and sexy, provocative and probing, without changing a word of the text.
The musical is based on Lynn Riggs’s play Green Grow the Lilacs and features original choreography by Agnes De Mille.
Talking about the news, Eva Price, Sonia Friedman and Michael Harrison said today, “Very occasionally a production comes along that redefines a classic musical for a generation – Daniel Fish’s revelatory reimagining of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s masterpiece Oklahoma! will be forever stamped in the memories of those that see it. After a hugely successful sold-out run at the Young Vic, we’re thrilled to transfer Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Oklahoma! to the West End in its 80th anniversary year and bring the production to the wider UK audience it deserves.”
