About This Production
Based on the 2019 revival, this production leaves the original text and score intact while exploring them through a 21st century lens. This production aims to reflect the concerns of a diverse American society, and their relation to their country that reveals a darker psychological truth at its core.
Our advertisement for Oklahoma! reads “THIS AIN’T YOUR GRANDPARENTS’ OKLAHOMA!”
We decided to model this production after the 2019 Broadway revival. The wonderful music and dialogue are the same as the original, but the approach to the storytelling is a modern, country music style with a romantic view.
The result is an Oklahoma! that is darker and more realistic; a production that highlights the toxic masculinity between the men, the sacrifices made in order to form a community, and the struggle of women (particularly Laurey).
There’s a lot to take in and interpret, so please sit up in your seat and enjoy the show.
