The 1998 production of Oklahoma! is to be screened in cinemas worldwide to mark the musical’s 80th birthday.
The production starred Hugh Jackman before he landed the role of Wolverine, as well as Maureen Lipman.
80 years after first premiering on Broadway, Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Oklahoma! is recognided as a theatrical landmark,” commented Imogen Lloyd Webber, SVP at Concord Theatricals on behalf of The Rodgers & Hammerstein Organisation.
“It was the first successful, truly unified musical – a seamless integration of song, story and dance. This 1998 production masterfully combined those three elements, and the resulting film is a treasure trove for musical theatre fans of all ages.”
The film will be shown in over 800 cinemas worldwide – including the UK, Ireland, United States, Canada, Norway and Australia – on Sunday, 16th July and Wednesday, 19th July 2023.
