An intimately staged and darkly revisionist revival of Oklahoma! that enjoyed a critically acclaimed and sold-out Off Broadway run will transfer to Broadway this season.

The production, which originated in 2015 at Bard College’s SummerScape festival and then was staged this fall at St. Ann’s Warehouse in Brooklyn, will begin previews on March 19 and open on April 7 at Circle in the Square, which is the only theater-in-the-round on Broadway. Read the full story in the New York Times.

Bard's Oklahoma! has been lauded as one of the top theater productions of 2018. Time magazine calls Oklahoma! the best play of the year—a “provocative” new take on the Rodgers and Hammerstein classic. The production also made best theater lists from the New York Times and Vulture. Time writes, “The painfully relevant production lands at the exact right moment in a country where demonization of immigrants and outsiders is on the rise and mass shootings are an everyday occurrence.”
