Directed by Steve Kinsella of the Kinsella Theater Group, and produced by Jack Gaughan of the Brentwood Theater Company, Rodgers and Hammerstein’s first collaboration remains their most innovative. “Oklahoma!” set the standards and established the rules of musical theater still being followed today.
Set in the early 20th-century West, the high-spirited musical depicts the rivalry between local farmers and cowboys. The love story of Curly, a handsome cowboy, and Laurey, a winsome farm girl, is as bumpy as a surrey ride down a country road. That they’ll succeed in making a new life together we have no doubt, and that this new life will take root in a brand-new state provides the climax to the “Oklahoma!”
