The producers of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Oklahoma!, which played at the Young Vic earlier this year and is transferring to the Wyndham’s Theatre in the West End, has set dates for the show’s run.
Oklahoma! will run from 16 February to 2 September 2023 at the Wyndham’s Theatre.
Life of Pi, which is currently playing at the Wyndham’s, will close on 15 January 2023.
There’s still no news on casting, but Oklahoma! at the Young Vic 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.
The show got great reviews at the Young Vic including Five Stars from The Telegraph (“Punchy, playful and sexy, this Oklahoma! is an absolute knockout”) and four stars the Evening Standard, TimeOut, and 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.”
