Director Daniel Fish reimagines the Rodgers and Hammerstein classic for the 21st century in a revival direct from an acclaimed run on Broadway and US tour.

Oklahoma! tells a story of a community banding together against an outsider, and the frontier life that shaped America.

Seventy-five years after Rodgers and Hammerstein reinvented the American musical, this visionary production is funny and sexy, provocative and probing, without changing a word of the text.

The production has Orchestrations, Arrangements & Music Supervision by Daniel Kluger, Choreography by John Heginbotham (Original Choreography by Agnes de Mille), Set Design by Laura Jellinek, Costume Design by Terese Wadden, Lighting Design by Scott Zielinski, Sound Design by Drew Levy, Projection Design by Joshua Thorson, and Casting by Jacob Sparrow, with Associate Director Jordan Fein, and Associate Set Designer Grace Laubacher.

Casting and further creatives are to be confirmed.

Oklahoma! goes on sale to Soul Mates 7 December 12PM and Friends 16 December 12PM before public booking opens at 11 January 2022 at 12PM.

The musical forms part of the Young Vic’s spring 2022 season which also includes premiere of The Collaboration. Written by Anthony McCarten and directed by Kwame Kwei-Armah, the show explores the complex and captivating relationship between Jean-Michel Basquiat and Andy Warhol, starring Jeremy Pope and Paul Bettany as the iconic artists.

Young Vic Artistic Director Kwame Kwei-Armah said: “There is a moment at the beginning of every theatre show when you and your fellow audience take a collective breath before diving into a story that could change you or your perspective irrevocably. To my mind, the work and projects announced today channel this energy. As we offer them, I ask that together we take a breath, listen carefully, and be open to reimagining what we thought we knew.

“Tony Award-winning Oklahoma! unlocks a fresh perspective on a great American musical, whilst The Collaboration invites us behind the iconography and fame, and inside the intimate friendship between two artists. These stories ask us to lean in closely and challenge our preconceptions.”
