“Rodgers & Hammerstein’s first collaboration remains, in many ways, their most innovative, having set the standards and established the rules of musical theater still being followed today. Set in a western territory just after the turn of the 20th century, the high-spirited rivalry between the local farmers and cowboys provides the colorful background against which Curly, a handsome cowboy, and Laurey, a winsome farm girl, play out their love story. Although the road to true love never runs smooth, with these two headstrong romantics holding the reins, love’s journey is as bumpy as a surrey ride down a country road. That they will succeed in making a new life together we have no doubt, and that this new life will begin in a brand-new state provides the ultimate climax to the triumphant OKLAHOMA!”

This musical continues to be groundbreaking even to this day, with the 2019 Broadway revival, which “was nominated for eight Tony Awards, and won Best Revival of a Musical and Best Featured Actress in a Musical for Ali Stroker (who played Ado Annie), making her the first wheelchair user to win a Tony.” en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oklahoma!
