Oklahoma! extends Broadway run into 2020
The new, immersive Broadway revival of Rodgers & Hammerstein's Oklahoma! will now play its final performance on January 19, 2020.
Originally scheduled to close on September 1, 2019, the Bard SummerScape production of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Oklahoma! will now play its final performance at the Circle in the Square Theatre on January 19, 2020, due to popular demand. Oklahoma! began previews on March 19, 2019, ahead of an official opening on April 7.
Producer Eva Price commented on the extension: “Bringing the show from Bard SummerScape to St. Ann’s Warehouse and then to Broadway has been a remarkable and fulfilling journey. We are so thrilled for the critical and public response to the show and happy to be able to continue to have more audiences see this event into the new year.”
Under the direction of Daniel Fish, this is Oklahoma! as you’ve never seen or heard it before, re-orchestrated and reimagined for the 21st century... seventy-five years after Rodgers & Hammerstein reinvented the American musical.
Oklahoma! features music by Richard Rodgers and a book and lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II (based on the play Green Grow the Lilacs by Lynn Riggs), with original dances by Agnes de Mille.
The cast of Oklahoma! includes (in alphabetical order) Will Brill (as Ali Hakim), Anthony Cason (as Cord Elam), Damon Daunno (as Curly McLain), James Davis (as Will Parker), Gabrielle Hamilton (as Lead Dancer), Rebecca Naomi Jones (as Laurey Williams), Will Mann (as Mike), Mallory Portnoy (as Gertie Cummings), Ali Stroker (as Ado Annie), Mitch Tebo (as Andrew Carnes), two-time Tony Award-nominee Mary Testa (as Aunt Eller), and Patrick Vaill (as Jud Fry).
This Bard SummerScape production features orchestrations, arrangements & music supervision by Daniel Kluger, new choreography by John Heginbotham, music direction by Nathan Koci, scenic design by Laura Jellinek (based on an original concept by John Conklin), costume design by Terese Wadden, lighting design by Scott Zielinski, sound design by Drew Levy, and projection design by Joshua Thorson.
