Main House

★★★★★ "Punchy, playful and sexy, this Oklahoma! is an absolute knockout" Telegraph 

★★★★★ "A masterpiece...absolutely revelatory" WhatsOnStage

★★★★★ "Exceptional" Metro

★★★★★ "Oklahoma! is stunningly reimagined" Financial Times

★★★★ "A stunning reinvention...the best revival yet" Evening Standard

This is Rodgers & Hammerstein's Oklahoma! as you’ve never seen it before, re-orchestrated and reimagined for the 21st century. Winner of the Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical, Daniel Fish's bold interpretation transfers to the Young Vic, direct from an acclaimed run on Broadway and a U.S. tour.

Oklahoma! tells a story of a community banding together against an outsider, and the frontier life that shaped America. Seventy-five years after Rodgers & Hammerstein reinvented the American musical, this visionary production is funny and sexy, provocative and probing, without changing a word of the text.
