Ohhhh, Nick Hytner's Carousel was a life altering experience.I loved every minute of it (and I've seen my share of community theatre productions)! From what I have heard and read Trevor Nunn has done the same for Oklahoma with Susan Stroman's choreography! Yahoo! <P>D

This production of Oklahoma is the best musical production I have ever seen.<P>There is so much going on, so much attention to detail that you are held entranced all the way through. Stroman's choreography is superb - exhilirating.<P>Do go and see it.

DavidH, I feel the exact same way about CAROUSEL. <P>I've seen original productions of SWEENEY TODD, EVITA, DREAMGIRLS, NINE and more, but CAROUSEL at Lincoln Center was the best!<P>Can't wait for OKLAHOMA.

<B>Six Decades Later, Still the Great American Musical</B><P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>The people will get a chance to sample the show's unique explanation of how Americans invent themselves on March 21, when "Oklahoma!" opens on Broadway almost exactly 59 years after its premiere. This revival at the Gershwin Theater, directed by Trevor Nunn, was first mounted for the Royal National Theater in London. Unusually, it is neither a Highly Important Deconstruction by a Wunderkind Director (as with the current "Cabaret," reconceived by Sam Mendes) nor an affable reimagining (as with the recently departed "Annie Get Your Gun").<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><A HREF="http://www.nytimes.com/2002/02/24/arts/theater/24MORD.html" TARGET=_blank><B>Click for More</B></A><P>

<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>The Briton Who Revived 'Oklahoma!'<P>BENEDICT NIGHTINGALE, NY Times<P>LONDON — A less tenacious, obstinate or driven director might have given up the battle, but Trevor Nunn was always determined to give New York theatergoers a chance to see the makeover of Rodgers and Hammerstein's "Oklahoma!," which he staged at the National Theater here in 1998. And why not? The production, praised by almost every reviewer for its freshness, moved to the West End, drew the crowds and, Mr. Nunn would like to think, still has something fundamental to say about the values and virtues of America.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><a href=http://www.nytimes.com/2002/03/17/arts/theater/17NIGH.html target=_blank>More</a>

<B>'Oklahoma!' Yeeow! Ayipioeeay!</B><BR>London Staging Corrals An American Classic <BR>By Nelson Pressley in The Washington Post <P><BR>NEW YORK -- After a four-year drumbeat that has fueled expectations and a $12 million advance sale, here at last is Trevor Nunn's 1998 London staging of "Oklahoma!," ambling onto Broadway with the gait of a gentleman cowboy. The show, which opened last night at the Gershwin Theatre, is easily the most anticipated musical of the season, and it's a stately production of a grand old classic. <P>Frontier energy? You'll find plenty in Susan Stroman's choreography, which encompasses everything from cute two-steps to the gorgeous mayhem of an all-out brawl. The melodramatic story about a lovely, independent-minded farm gal named Laurey and her two suitors -- strapping, charming Curly and that hulking psychopathic farmhand nesting in the smokehouse, Jud Fry -- is told with a minimum of corn. The acting is direct and effective from beginning to end.<P><A HREF="http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A377-2002Mar21.html" TARGET=_blank><B>click for more</B></A>

<B>This Time, a Beautiful Mornin' With a Dark Side</B><BR>Article in the NY Times By Ben Brantley<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>And now class let us pause to name the virtues on which this country was built by our pioneering forebears. Hard work? Yes, of course. The desire for independence? Determination? Yes, those are good. And . . . what's that you two cut-ups are saying? Yes, you in the back row, Trevor Nunn and Susan Stroman. You say the West was won on the strength of sexual hormones? Can you support this idea?<P>Sure they can. In their freshly reconceived version of that most classic of American musicals, "Oklahoma!," which opened last night at the Gershwin Theater, the director Trevor Nunn and the choreographer Susan Stroman find rushing erotic currents in the frontier spirit. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><A HREF="http://www.nytimes.com/2002/03/22/arts/theater/22OKLA.html" TARGET=_blank><B>Click for More</B></A><BR>

<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>An Enduring Classic<BR> A Fine Revival Of `Oklahoma!'<P>MALCOLM JOHNSON, Hartford Courant<P>NEW YORK - Patrick Wilson enjoys his first big moment of glory in the Trevor Nunn-Susan Stroman revival of "Oklahoma!" when a downstage scrim snags, leaving the Gershwin Theatre's wide stage partly clouded. When the recalcitrant curtain at last clears the set's arch, Wilson puts extra emphasis on the lyrics of "Oh, What a Beautiful Morning," especially "Everything's Going My Way."<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><a href=http://www.ctnow.com/entertainment/stage/hc-oklahomarev.artmar22.story?coll=hc%2Dheadlines%2Dtheaterreviews target=_blank>More</a>
