Helmed by Daniel Fish, the new production of Oklahoma! offers a stark and contemporary re-imagining of the Rodgers and Hammerstein classic, featuring new arrangements and orchestrations by Daniel Kluger.

The creative team includes John Heginbotham (choreography), Laura Jellinek (scenic design), Terese Wadden (costume design), Scott Zielinski (lighting design), Drew Levy (sound design), Joshua Thorson (projection design), and Nathan Koci (music direction). Casting is by Will Cantler and Adam Caldwell of Telsey & Co.

The first collaboration between the Broadway golden age powerhouse duo of Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II, Oklahoma! was adapted from Lynn Riggs' play Green Grow the Lilacs, and was originally choreographed by Agnes de Mille. The original production, which premiered on Broadway in 1943, is largely credited with being the first musical to fully integrate its book, score, and choreography towards advancing the plot. Fish's re-imagining leaves the original text and score intact, while exploring them through a 21st century lens.

Oklahoma! is produced on Broadway by Eva Price, Level Forward, Abigail E. Disney, Barbara Manocherian & Carl Moellenberg, James L. Nederlander, David Mirvish, Mickey Liddell & Robert Ahrens, BSL Enterprises & MagicSpace Entertainment, Berlind Productions, The John Gore Organization, Cornice Productions, Bard Fisher/R. Gold, LAMF/J. Geller, T Narang/ZKM Media, The Routh/Franke/Baruch/Viertel Group, Araca/IPN, St. Ann’s Warehouse, and Tamar Climan.
