Bway Oklahoma! Will End In Spring

News   Bway Oklahoma! Will End In Spring The end is in sight for the Broadway run of Oklahoma!, according to print advertisements appearing Jan. 29.

"Broadway engagement must end this spring!" the ads read. A spokesman said no date has yet been announced for the final performance of the Tony Award-nominated Cameron Mackintosh revival of the Rodgers and Hammerstein classic.

Performances continue at the Gershwin Theatre. There is no official announcement of the next show for the Gershwin, and no official announcement of a national tour for Oklahoma!, though some touring houses around the country have announced the show for its 2003 season.

The Cameron Mackintosh revival began at the Royal National Theatre in London in 1998 and was embraced as a fresh, more naturalistic view of the hardscrabble folks of "Indian territory." Trevor Nunn directs, Susan Stroman choreographs. The cast includes Patty Duke, Stephen R. Buntrock, Josefina Gabrielle, Jessica Boevers, Merwin Foard, Justin Bohon, Aasif Mandi, Michael McCarty and John Jellison.

The Broadway run of Oklahoma! opened March 21, 2002.
