Oklahoma! features music by Richard Rodgers and a book and lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II, based on the play Green Grow the Lilacs, with original dances by Agnes de Mille.

The creative team at St. Ann’s Warehouse will be made up of Daniel Kluger (new orchestrations, arrangements and music supervision, John Heginbotham (new choreography), Nathan Koci (music direction), Laura Jellinek (scenic design, based on an original concept by John Conklin), Terese Wadden (costume design), Scott Zielinski (lighting design), Drew Levy (sound design), and Joshua Thorson (projection design).

Fish’s other directing credits include Acquanetta, Don’t Look Back (The Chocolate Factory), Who Left This Fork Here (Baryshnikov Arts Center, Onassis Center), Ted Hearne’s The Source (BAM Next Wave, L.A Opera, San Francisco Opera), and Eternal.
