A Mini-Festival of New Puppet Theater from The Lab
MAY 30-JUNE 2
All tickets $20 in advance | $25 at the door | TICKETS >>
Each spring, St. Ann’s Warehouse showcases works-in-progress developed over the course of a year in our Puppet Lab. Now in its 20th year, St. Ann’s Puppet Lab is an experimental haven for artists making interdisciplinary puppet and object theater.
An intimately staged and darkly revisionist revival of “Oklahoma!” that enjoyed a critically acclaimed and sold-out Off Broadway run will transfer to Broadway this season.
The production, which originated in 2015 at Bard College’s SummerScapefestival and then was staged this fall at St. Ann’s Warehouse in Brooklyn, will begin previews on March 19 and open on April 7 at Circle in the Square, which is the only theater-in-the-round on Broadway.
Set in Indian Territory in the early 20th century, just before Oklahoma became a state, the influential Rodgers and Hammerstein musical depicts a love triangle unfolding against the backdrop of a transforming nation.
The new production, at once joyful and menacing, is directed by the experimental theater veteran Daniel Fish and features countrified arrangements of the classic score performed by a small onstage band.
