Rodgers and Hammerstein's Oklahoma!

Series Website »
Episode Guide »
Celebrating its 70th anniversary in 2013, Rodgers & Hammerstein's landmark musical "Oklahoma!" returns to GREAT PERFORMANCES for a special commemorative encore telecast. This acclaimed production from London's National Theatre, directed by Trevor Nunn and choreographed by Susan Stroman, set box office records during its original runs in the West End and then later on Broadway, with critics and audiences alike captivated by its fresh new take on a venerable classic. The original London production also featured a sensational, star-making performance by Hugh Jackman as Curly before his ascent to international movie stardom in the X Men film franchise. Also featured are original cast members Josefina Gabrielle as Laurey, Maureen Lipman (The Pianist) as Aunt Eller, and 2002 Best Supporting Actor Tony-winner Shuler Hensley as the menacing Jud Fry.
