Full casting has now been confirmed for the West End return of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Oklahoma!.
Producers say the classic show has been re-orchestrated and reimagined for the 21st century, and it enjoyed a sold out run at London’s Young Vic Theatre last year. The new production has also found success in New York and on a US tour.
Oklahoma! opens at Wyndham’s Theatre on 28th February, running until 2nd September with special rates available at certain performances for groups of ten or more.

About the show
Winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical Revival, director Daniel Fish’s interpretation of Oklahoma! tells a story of a community banding together against an outsider, and the frontier life that shaped America.
80 years after Rodgers and Hammerstein reinvented the American musical, this version is said to be “funny and sexy, provocative and probing, without changing a word of the text.”
After long and highly distinguished careers with other collaborators, Richard Rodgers (composer, 1902-79) and Oscar Hammerstein II (librettist/lyricist, 1895-1960) joined forces in 1943 to create the most successful partnership in American musical theatre.
Oklahoma! was the first Rodgers and Hammerstein musical. Their shows that followed included Carousel, South Pacific, The King and I and The Sound of Music.
