Oh! What a beautiful revival
Back by popular demand, the Marriot Theatre celebrates 75 years of Rodgers and Hammerstein's iconic musical. The first production of their incredible partnership, Oklahoma! has long since become one of the most beloved works in American musical theatre, with its delightful score, gripping book, and cast of cherished characters including eternally bright cowboy Curly McLain!
What's the story?
An upcoming box social is stirring strong emotions among the population of a small Oklahoma town in the early 1900s. Curly McLain has asked farm girl Laurey to accompany him but she has refused, instead accepting the invitation of the mysterious Jud Fry. Laurie's friend Ado Annie is going with her boyfriend Will Parker, but while he's been away she has been seen flirting with Persian pedlar Ali Hakim. On the night of the social, matters come to a head, in a whirlwind of dancing and fistfights.
