Oklahoma!’s Ali Stroker and Rebecca Naomi Jones are the latest in a string of Broadway stars to tackle a Rodgers and Hammerstein song in the R&H Goes Pop! music video series.
Tony winner Stroker, who plays Ado Annie and made history earlier this year, sings “Surrey With the Fringe on Top” above from Oklahoma!. In the show, the number is sung by Curly as he tries to convince Laurie, played by Jones, to attend the box social with him. Jones takes on a darker tune, performing “Lonely Room,” which is normally sung by Judd as he plans to get Laurie all for himself. Check out that clip below.
