"Forget your traditional idea of Rogers & Hammerstein's OKLAHOMA! This daring, brilliant, and utterly absorbing reinterpretation is a must see." - Tim Teeman, Daily Beast

“How is it that the coolest new show on Broadway is a 1943 musical? Daniel Fish’s wide-awake, jolting, and altogether wonderful production of OKLAHOMA! is as stimulating and frightening—and as fresh—as last night’s fever dream. This is OKLAHOMA! for an era in which longstanding American legacies are being examined with newly skeptical eyes. This isn’t an act of plunder, but of reclamation. Astonishing.”
