Considered a turning point in musical theatre history, Oklahoma! opened in 1943, ushering in the “golden age” of Broadway. Rodgers and Hammerstein musical catapulted the songwriting duo to success, running for 2,212 performances and garnering a special 1944 Pulitzer Prize. The iconic musical centers on cowboy Curly McLain and his budding romance with town beauty, Laurey Williams, in the 1906 Oklahoma territory. However, trouble brews when preparations for the night’s box social dance spark jealousy and confusion among the townsfolk.
