In 1999 a young Australian actor named Hugh Jackman took London by Storm Playing "Curly" in a West End revival of the classic musical "Oklahoma!," lighting the rocket he soon took to international stardom. Image Entertainment presents this theatrical milestone for the first time ever on Blu-ray on December 4th at an SRP of $29.98.
The beloved Rodgers and Hammerstein musical "Oklahoma!" forever changed this particularly American art form. Not only did it provide some of the greatest songs ever written, including "Oklahoma!," "Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin'," "People Will Say We're in Love," and "The Surrey with the Fringe on Top," the musical numbers were written to move the story's narrative forward as well. And Agnes De Mille's breathtaking choreography was something Broadway theatregoers had never seen before.
Jackman (X-Men, Australia), who will next be seen starring in the holiday blockbuster musical, Les Misérables, is one of the world's best known stars for his varied work in feature films, theatre and television. In the theatre world, Jackman received a Tony Award for his starring role in "The Boy from Oz." He has hosted the venerable Tony Award shows numerous times, and "Hugh Jackman: Back on Broadway," his limited-run, one-man show last year was also a stunning, sold-out success. This year he received a Special Tony™ Award for his work as a performer and humanitarian.
As the holidays approach, this production of "Oklahoma!" on Blu-ray will be a collector's must-have, as well as a cherished addition to anyone's musical theatre library.
