Still “doin’ fine” after 60 years, Rodgers & Hammerstein’s landmark American musical Oklahoma! is reborn in this film version of the Royal National Theatre of Great Britain’s award-winning production. Directed by Trevor Nunn and choreographed by Susan Stroman, it set box office records during its run in London, and again on Broadway, with critics and audiences alike captivated by its fresh new take on a venerable classic. The magic of the original London cast was captured in this deluxe film adaptation, which includes a sensational, star-making performance by Hugh Jackman as Curly. Also featured are original cast members Josefina Gabrielle as Laurey, Maureen Lipman as Aunt Eller and Tony-winner Shuler Hensley as the menacing yet hauntingly sympathetic Jud Fry.
