The new revival of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Oklahoma! is a complete reimagining of the 1943 classic. Though the production helmed by Daniel Fish does not change a word of the script or lyrics, a new meaning is illuminated in this minimalist mounting.
The perception of the classic (bolstered by the film adaptation) may best be described as “bright, golden” as the haze on the meadow, but what two words would the current cast use to describe this revival?
We asked cast members Ali Stroker, James Davis, Patrick Vaill, Rebecca Naomi Jones, Gabrielle Hamilton, Mallory Portnoy, and Damon Daunno before their official opening April 7 at the Circle in the Square Theatre on Broadway.
