Tickets for the critically-acclaimed, Tony Award-winning production of Rodgers & Hammerstein's OKLAHOMA! are now on sale Rodgers & Hammerstein's OKLAHOMA! will play in Chicago's CIBC Theatre (18 W. Monroe St.) for a limited engagement January 11-23, 2022.
Directed by Daniel Fish, this is OKLAHOMA! as you've never seen or heard it before-reimagined for the 21st century, and now the Tony Award winner for Best Revival of a Musical.
Direct from an acclaimed run on Broadway comes an OKLAHOMA! that looks and sounds like America today. The Daily Beast raves "Forget your traditional idea of OKLAHOMA!. Daniel Fish's daring, utterly absorbing re-interpretation is different-brilliantly so."
OKLAHOMA! tells a story of a community banding together against an outsider, and the frontier life that shaped America. Upending the sunny romance of a farmer and a cowpoke, this production "lets us experience Rodgers and Hammerstein's greatness anew." (The New Yorker). Without changing a word of text, this visionary production allows the classic musical - and our country - to be seen in a whole new light.
