Description

With the original cast headed by Hugh Jackman and Maureen Lipman, this Royal National Theatre production broke boxoffice records and was recognized by the Hammerstein estate as the definitive version of the musical. Directed by Trevor Nunn, the transition to screen won an International Emmy. Oklahoma! pioneered stage musicals by telling an emotional story through song lyrics as it had never been done before. It marked the beginning of the legendary Broadway partnership of Rodgers & Hammerstein. The show features some of the most beloved songs in the history of American musicals, including Oh What a Beautiful Morning, The Surrey With The Fringe On Top, I Cain't Say No, Many a New Day, Out of My Dreams, Oklahoma! (of course!), two songs missing from the 1955 film production, and more. It is the most honored musical drama of all time, with a Pulitzer Prize, two Academy Awards and an honorary Grammy and Tony. It became the first Broadway musical commemorated in a US postage stamp, and has been voted by New York's influential Drama League as The Best Musical of the Century.
