Oklahoma! to transfer to the West End

Producers of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Oklahoma!, which played the Young Vic in the Summer, have announced that the show is to transfer.

It is heading to the Wyndham’s Theatre from February 2023.

Current show at the Wyndham’s – Life of Pi – finishes up there on 15 January 2023.

There’s no news on casting, but the Young Vic show starred Arthur Darvill as Curly McLain, with Anoushka Lucas as Laurey Williams, James Davis as Will Parker, Stavros Demetraki as Ali Hakim, Olivier Award nominee Liza Sadovy as Aunt Eller, Patrick Vaill as Jud Fry and Marisha Wallace as Ado Annie.

At the Young Vic the show scooped an impressive amount of great reviews including ★★★★★ “Punchy, playful and sexy, this Oklahoma! is an absolute knockout” – The Telegraph; ★★★★ “The best revival yet” – Evening Standard, ★★★★ “This radical Rodgers & Hammerstein revival lives up to the thirsty hype” – TimeOut, and ★★★★ “Modern, sexy… injects thrills into a familiar musical, making it feel newly minted” – The Guardian.

Oklahoma! is co-directed by Daniel Fish and Jordan Fein, with Orchestrations and Arrangements by Daniel Kluger and Co-Music Supervision by Daniel Kluger and Nathan Koci. Choreographer is John Heginbotham, set designers are by Lael Jellinek and Grace Laubacher, costume design by Terese Wadden, lighting by Scott Zielinski, sound by Drew Levy, and projection design by Joshua Thorson.

Producers Eva Price, Sonia Friedman and Michael Harrison said in a statement: “Very occasionally a production comes along that redefines a classic musical for a generation – Daniel Fish’s revelatory reimagining of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s masterpiece Oklahoma! will be forever stamped in the memories of those that see it. After a hugely successful sold-out run at the Young Vic, we’re thrilled to transfer Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Oklahoma! to the West End in its 80th anniversary year and bring the production to the wider UK audience it deserves.”
