Oklahoma! Tickets

Wyndham's Theatre, London
16 February 2023 - 2 September 2023

The smash-hit Tony Award winning production of Oklahoma! at the Wyndham’s Theatre in London.

This is a production of Oklahoma! like you’ve never seen before, re-orchestrated and reimagined for the 21st century.

Winner of the Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical, director Daniel Fish brings his acclaimed New York production, which is stripped down to reveal the darker psychological truths at its core, to the UK for the first time.  

The all-star cast at the Young Vic included Arthur Darvill (Doctor Who, Broadchurch), Anoushka Lucas (Afterlife at the National Theatre), James Davis (the New York production of Oklahoma!), Greg Hicks (Snow White and the Huntsman), Stavros Demetraki (National Theatre), Olivier Award nominee Liza Sadovy (Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street), and Patrick Vaill (Dash & Lily).

Oklahoma! is coming to the Wyndham’s Theatre from 16 February to 2 September 2023.

Is Oklahoma! transferring to the West End? (Stage Spy)
Stage Spy News: The Young Vic announced last week that the 2019 Broadway production of Oklahoma! is to be staged in London, helmed by the Broadway production's director Daniel Fish. But the co-producers of the show aren't your everyday partners, with the original Broadway producer Eva Price involved, plus West End producer/impresario Sonia Friedman Productions and high-profile London producer Michael Harrison. The Young Vic run is a short but sweet 2 months (26 April to 25 June 2022), so we are assuming, and hoping, and praying, that the show will move on to somewhere bigger, and for longer, in Summer 2022. Sonia Friedman is arguably today's most important and prolific West End producer, with a long track-record of producing successful musicals and plays in London. Her current productions in the West End include Harry Potter and the Cursed Child at the Palace Theatre; The Book of Mormon at the Prince of Wales Theatre; The Shark is Broken at the Ambassadors Theatre; and starting tonight, 3 December, at the Bush Theatre, Fair Play written by Ella Road. Forthcoming shows from Sonia Friedman include Ruth Wilson in The Human Voice at the Harold Pinter Theatre from March 2022; To Kill a Mockingbird at the Gielgud Theatre starring Rafe Spall from March 2022; Jerusalem at the Apollo Theatre from April 2022 starring Mark Rylance and Mackenzie Crook; Robert Icke's production of Oedipus; and Mark Rylance in Dr Semmelweis at the Bristol Old Vic from January. Sonia Friedman Productions is also active in the US, producing Funny Girl on Broadway in March 2022 starring Beanie Feldstein as Fanny Brice and Ramin Karimloo as Nick Arnstein, plus a US tour of Mean Girls. Michael Harrison is one of the West End's key producers through his Michael Harrison Entertainment company. His productions currently include Beverly Knight musical The Drifter's Girl at the Garrick Theatre; and forthcoming festive treat Pantoland at the Palladium starring Donny Osmond and Julian Clary; and the UK tour of Disney musical Bedknobs and Broomsticks, which is also rumoured to be coming into the London at some point. Harrison also produced the recent revival of Andrew Lloyd Webber's Jospeh and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat the London Palladium. Eva Price is a multi Tony Award winning producer, through her Maximum Entertainment Productions with Avram Freedberg. Current productions on Broadway include Jagged Little Pill at the Broadhurst Theatre; Tina - The Tina Turner Musical; and Dear Evan Hansen; and the US tours of Oklahoma! and What The Constitution Means To Me. We have everything crossed that Oklahoma! will get a longer run in the West End! (Main image: Broadway production of Oklahoma!) Book Oklahoma! tickets at the Wyndham's Theatre in London

Read more about the new production of Oklahoma! at the Young Vic. The Young Vic's production of Best of Enemies, a co-production with Headlong, starts tomorrow 4 December at the theatre until 22 January 2022. A new play by James Graham (Quiz, Labour of Love), directed by Jeremy Herrin (This House, People, Places and Things), Best of Enemies stars Charles Edwards and David Harewood. In the theatre's Clare Theatre space, Deirdre McLaughlin, who is the 2021 Genesis Future Director Award recipient, directs a new play. Also five plays will bring together five directors and five writers, to make five-minute plays, with James Barnes, David Furlong, David Gilbert, Abigail Sewell and Khadifa Wong directing works by Babirye Bukilwa, Gael Le Cornec, Martin Crimp, Erinn Dhesi and Mufaro Makubika. Following over twenty years supporting early-career artists, the Young Vic's Directors Program will be reimagined as the Creators Program, a home for multi-disciplinary, anti-disciplinary and hybrid artists. Creative Headspace #2 will see the Young Vic support up to 50 members of the Genesis Network with a paid opportunity to be creative on the Young Vic's TikTok channel, with support and workshops on working in the medium. Kwame Kwei-Armah said in a statement to the press: "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. Kwame Kwei-Armah (c) Johan Persson "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. "At the same time, Sue Emmas and the Directors Program take an exciting new step: rebranding as the Creators Program. This new iteration innovates how we support anti-disciplinary and hybrid theatre-makers' work and self-expression - as just one example, we launch Creative Headspace #2 by inviting artists to explore the medium of TikTok. We also take this moment to celebrate the 100 writers and directors who have participated in Five Plays, as we announce the latest group of artists to experiment with their craft in our house. Later next year Deirdre McLaughlin, our 2021 Genesis Future Directors Award recipient, will be supported to make a fully-resourced production at the Young Vic. "Across all our work, we safeguard our accessible ticket pricing model, despite the financial challenges of the last 18 months, with 10% of tickets going free to schools, community members who experience barriers to access and early-career artists. Our commitment to channeling our work in the digital space continues, and we will be sharing more information about how audiences around the UK and globally can join us soon. "So, I invite you to join us- whether you're an artist, audience member or supporter - as together we take the bold step of inhabiting someone else's world, receiving their perspective and being open to change. We'll see you there as the lights go down - it's going to be thrilling."
