Oklahoma! National Tour to Launch in Oklahoma City
Daniel Fish's Broadway production will hit the road in 2020.
Daniel Fish's Tony-nominated Broadway revival of Rodgers and Hammerstein's Oklahoma! will launch a national tour in fall 2020, marking the first time in 40 years that a first-class equity production of the musical has toured North America. The tour will kick off at the Civic Center Music Hall in Oklahoma City.
This Oklahoma! originated at Bard SummerScape and played a sold-out run this fall at St. Ann's Warehouse. The creative team for Oklahoma! includes Daniel Kluger (orchestrations, arrangements, and music supervision), John Heginbotham (choreography), Nathan Koci (music direction), Laura Jellinek (scenic design), Terese Wadden (costume design), Scott Zielinski (lighting design), Drew Levy (sound design), and Joshua Thorson (projection design).
Oklahoma! features music by Richard Rodgers and a book and lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II based on the play Green Grow the Lilacs by Lynn Riggs, with original choreography by Agnes de Mille.
