Wyndhams Theatre is delighted to announce Oklahoma!, awarded five stars by The Telegraph and Financial Times, Metro and WhatsOnStage. Are you ready for a Tony Award-winning feel-good revival of one of the world’s favourite musicals? Grab tickets for the show and get ready to fall in love with Rodgers and Hammerstein’s classic all over again. It’s on for a limited season, from Thursday 16th February to Saturday 2nd September 2023, and it’s packed full of Western-style fun.
This is Oklahoma! re-imagined for the 21st century by Daniel Fish, a bold and stylish production. It won the Tony Award for Best Musical Revival, enjoying a sold out run at the Young Vic after absolutely smashing it in the USA. This is the story of a community getting together against an outsider, as fresh and cool eighty years after it was written. Described as a visionary production, it’s as funny and sexy as it is provocative and probing. Impressively, they haven’t changed a word. The talented Young Vic cast reprises. It’s fantastic stuff.

What to expect
Deep and meaningful
Actors were all fab.
Storyline was deep (know what it's about before you go).
Singing fab and solos all fantastic. Katie, 19 Aug 2023
Total revamp of the original show, a few suprises along the way , I loved every moment. Rachael, 16 Aug 2023
Interesting show but was not what we expected. Would not go to see this production again but would prefer something more akin to the original show. Some of the adaptations spoilt it for us. Not a fan of the "dark side". Trudi, 08 Aug 2023
High Expectations-Disappointing Result
The singing was good but it was hard to hear the talking, the American accents didn’t come through. The only person I could hear was the actor in the blue suit. Very strange ending and also the dropping of the boots at the start of the second half. I wouldn’t recommend it. Anne, 02 Jul 2023
Saw it 75&30 yrs agokk
Exciting and cleverly different from before. Avoid if under 12 and the sexual innuendo does nothing for it. John, 18 Jun 2023
A different take on an old favourite
If you're a die hard fan of the original production this may not be your cup of tea. My husband started off not enjoying it as he had appeared in a traditional amateur production (a long time ago!) but by the second half he was won over. Acting and singing were excellent and the special effects were very clever. Maybe not a 'family' night out as it's definitely more adult than the original. Linda, 04 Jun 2023
We found the second part of the show very deep which for us took away the feel good factor of the show. Margot, 29 Apr 2023
PARED-BACK & COMPELLING
Fresh, sexy, inventive, stripped-back and wonderful ensemble rendering of classic twentieth century musical making it entirely accessible for teenagers to pensioners today.
NB The nightt we saw the show the actor playing Lorey wasn't as strong as the rest of the company - was she an understudy? Diane, 27 Apr 2023
Enjoyable but should not be seen with the original show in mind Gillian, 27 Apr 2023
The basic story and the actors were really worth the money, however the interpretation was only average. Whilst in most parts the modernisation was absolutely fine, the modern dance addition straight after the break had nothing to do with the play or the story and neither has the music during this part anything to do with. Although the parts where the dialogues are presented in blackouts are not the best. The singing and dancing otherwise was great. Christine, 26 Apr 2023
Excellent twist on the film version
An excellent, entertaining show with good acting and top notch music and singing. After seeing the Young Vic production, this was "beefed up" with good results. The only downside for me was that I thought the black out times were a little long. Would willingly see it again! Mandy, 23 Apr 2023
Original musical with a twist.
Different adaptation. Quite dramatic. Totally unexpected. Susan, 18 Apr 2023
The show was not what I was expecting. It was much more meaningful. My interpretation would be that we shouldn’t take things at face value. Homely country folk can very quickly turn very nasty if one of their own is threatened. It reminded me of how the Southern States tried to pull down the shutters on the civil rights movement and turned a blind eye to racist attacks. Thomas, 14 Apr 2023
Too contemporary for my tastes
I’ve seen a fair amount of musical theatre and just wasn’t impressed. So contemporary and stripped back that it was a bit dull. The set was VERY stripped back and someone obviously thought it added something to the set by having the audience lit up most of the way through interspersed with a couple of pitch black moments which just didn’t make any sense. Very distracting as you don’t that as the stage is so bland, and the outfits so cheap, your eyes wonder around the audience whose are super illuminated! Not for me. Rosie, 02 Apr 2023
If you think you know Oklahoma, think again
This is no simple story of regular folk triumphing over outsiders and love conquering all! The production brings out all the complexities of competing sexual attractions and jealousy, making the ‘comic’ story of Ado Annie a shadow of the triangle between Laurie, Curly and Judd. And all done with such zest and energy. There is nothing coy or prim about this Oklahoma. Go see!! Elisabeth, 30 Mar 2023
New version confusing
This musical does not follow the film story so very confusing John, 17 Mar 2023
An alternative version of a classic show
This is a dark version of the show. It’s very still and was lacking the movement normally associated with the music. It often felt like watching a rehearsal. Ado Annie was fabulous and there were good performances from Will Parker and Ali Hakim but I didn’t leave feeling uplifted. Intact the final scene was disturbing and tragic. Julie, 12 Mar 2023
Great Good Time Musical done in Modern Way
