Overview

In 1943, Decca Broadway released the first-ever cast album of all time. The musical was Rodgers and Hammerstein’s groundbreaking Oklahoma!. Fast forward 76 years, the newly-relaunched Decca Broadway releases the new cast recording for the critically-acclaimed revival of Oklahoma! - winner of 2 TONY AWARDS including BEST REVIVAL OF A MUSICAL and BEST FEATURED ACTRESS IN A MUSICAL (ALI STROKER).

The 2019 revival of Oklahoma! is making history as the first time the Rodgers and Hammerstein estate has allowed new arrangements of the original score. The New York Times said of these new versions, “The well-known melodies have been reimagined - by the brilliant orchestrator and arranger Daniel Kluger - with the vernacular throb and straightforwardness of country and western ballads.”

Daniel Fish’s reimagined revival of Oklahoma! officially opened April 7 at Circle in the Square Theatre. The cast is led by Rebecca Naomi Jones as Laurey and Damon Daunno as Curly and the cast album is produced by Dean Sharenow and Daniel Kluger.

More on the Bard Summerscape Production of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Oklahoma! Over 75 years after Rodgers & Hammerstein reinvented the American musical, this is OKLAHOMA! as you’ve never seen or heard it before - reimagined for the 21st century. Stripped down to reveal the darker psychological truths at its core, Daniel Fish’s production tells a story of a community circling its wagons against an outsider, and the violence of the frontier that shaped America. Upending the sunny romance of a farmer and a cowpoke, this Oklahoma! allows the classic musical - and our country - to be seen in a whole new light. Funny and sexy, dark and terrifying, “this is the OKLAHOMA! that was there all along.” (New York Magazine)
