Just a week after America tuned in to watch 1965's Cinderela, starring Lesley Ann Warren, the Rodgers & Hammerstein Organization is holding another viewing party, this time for the 1998 London production of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Oklahoma!, starring Hugh Jackman.
The filmed production will be made available for free on Broadway HD, beginning at 8 PM, March 27, by clicking here. The production will remain available for free through the weekend.
Directed by Trevor Nunn, choreographed by Susan Stroman, and starring Jackman, the 1998 revival was produced by the Royal National Theater and transferred to Broadway in 2002, with Josefina Gabrielle as Laurey and Shuler Hensley as Jud reprising their roles from London, and with Patrick Wilson and Andrea Martin joining as Curly and Aunt Eller.
With music by Richard Rodgers and book and lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II, Oklahoma! is based on the play Green Grow the Lilacs by Lynn Riggs.
