NY Times Review: ‘Returning to Reims’ and Those European Working-Class Blues

Reimagined Oklahoma! Coming to St. Ann’s Warehouse 2018-2019 SEASON

Daniel Fish’s acclaimed 2015 production will make its New York City debut.

Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Oklahoma! will return to New York City in a new immersive production directed by Daniel Fish. Previews will begin September 27 at St. Ann’s Warehouse, which presents the production alongside producer Eva Price.

Inspired by Fish’s 2015 production at Bard College, this reimagined Oklahoma! brings audiences and artists together under the vast canopy of St. Ann’s Warehouse, and makes this classic musical feel as though it were written for today’s America. The Bard production featured a company led by Amber Grey, Damon Daunno, Mary Testa, and Allison Strong, with choreography by John Heginbotham and new music arrangements by Daniel Kluger.

On sale dates and casting will be announced at a later date. Stay tuned!

RETURNING TO REIMS STARTS FEBRUARY 4

St. Ann’s Warehouse presents the American Premiere of Schaubühne Berlin’s Returning to Reims, an adaptation of French author Didier Eribon’s memoir of the same name, directed by Berlin auteur Thomas Ostermeier, February 4-25. This production marks the first collaboration between St. Ann’s and the Schaubühne, whose production of Richard III recently garnered acclaim in BAM’s Next Wave Festival. Eribon’s 2014 book couples an emotional personal story of identity, estrangement and homecoming with the current French political landscape and the rise of nationalism in countries across Europe and in America. In Ostermeier’s adaptation, Homeland star Nina Hoss is an actress in a sound studio recording a voiceover for a documentary about Eribon’s return home to his working-class family after his father’s death.
