After shattering all box office records in Arena Stage’s 60-year history, Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Oklahoma! will once again delight audiences at Arena Stage at the Mead Center for American Theater when it returns to the Fichandler Stage. This is not your mother’s Oklahoma!. Inspired by the toughness of the prairie, Artistic Director Molly Smith sets her production in the robust world of territory life filled with a dynamic cast as rich and complex as the great tapestry of America itself. With Rodgers and Hammerstein’s timeless music, Oklahoma! celebrates the vigor of America’s pioneering spirit with athletic dance and boot-stomping energy. Chock full of classic tunes such as “Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin’,” and “People will Say We’re in Love,” this muscular production will thrill audiences young and old.
