Rodgers and Hammerstein refers to the duo of composer Richard Rodgers (1902–1979) and lyricist-dramatist Oscar Hammerstein II (1895–1960), who together were an influential, innovative and successful American musical theatre writing team. They created a string of popular Broadway musicals in the 1940s and 1950s, initiating what is considered the "golden age" of musical theatre.

Rodgers & Hammerstein's OKLAHOMA! Tony Award Winner Ali Stroker. Limited broadway engagement. This production of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s OKLAHOMA! was originally developed, produced, and premiered at the Richard B. Fisher Center for the Performing Arts at Bard College (Jeanne Donovan Fisher, Chair; Leon Botstein, President; Gideon Lester, Artistic Director; Bob Bursey, Executive Director; Caleb Hammons, Senior Producer) in July 2015.

Oklahoma! (Original Cast Album 75th Anniversary). It's been said that Rodgers & Hammerstein's musical interpretation of Lynn Riggs's Green Grow the Lilacs was the beginning of the modern American musical. Likewise, the show also gave birth to the "Original Cast" recording, when, for the first time ever, Decca producer Jack Kapp took the entire cast, chorus, and orchestra into a studio to record this LP, which entered the NARAS Hall of Fame in 1996. Alas, in 1998, what's here sounds like something recorded in 1943 for 78-rpm vinyl albums.

Overview - The BEST Broadway source for Oklahoma! tickets and Oklahoma! information, photos and videos. 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. This production shocked and moved me, raves Frank Rich of New York Magazine. Forget your traditional idea of Oklahoma! Daniel Fish’s daring, brilliant, utterly absorbing re-interpretation is dark and y so. (The Daily Beast) An audacious, sexy, upending ride (NY1) that’s as stimulating and jolting – and as fresh – as last night’s fever dream. Oklahoma! is astonishing.

Directed by William Hammerstein, the son of Rodgers' lyricist partner Oscar Hammerstein II, the new production was a faithful reproduction of the wildly successful original, retaining the Robert Russell Bennett orchestrations conducted by Jay Blackton, who had wielded the baton back in 1943 as well as for the 1955 film version. Even Agnes De Mille's revolutionary choreography was reproduced. Unlike the original Broadway cast album, which was recorded for 78 rpm records with their inherent time limitations, the new LP, recorded in early 1980, was able to include more of the music than ever before.

Rodgers and Hammerstein's pioneering musical Oklahoma! paved the way for the modern musical and represented the golden era of Hollywood musicals. Oklahoma! marked the first of nine Broadway shows written by composer Richard Rodgers and librettist Oscar Hammerstein II, who would go on to become the most successful team in musical theatre history and dominate the genre for the next two decades. It also single-handedly revived the art form, being the first stage production to seamlessly integrate themes, plot and character into the score and was the first musical to release an original cast recording. Since then, it has sold over two million copies and remains continuous in print due to its unabated appeal.
