Seventy-five years ago, Rodgers & Hammertsein’s “Oklahoma!” opened on Broadway and revolutionized American musical theater. This new production is a radical rethinking of the classic, visually pared down and with an emphasis on the dark forces and anxieties that lie beneath its sunny optimism. A seven-piece band plays new arrangments of R&H standards, such as “Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin’,” “People Will Say” and the title song.

Conceived and performed by master clown and Tony Award-winning actor Bill Irwin, the new play is an intimate exploration of Nobel Prize winner Samuel Beckett. Drawing fron “Waiting for Godot,” “Endgame,” “Texts for Nothing” and other works, Irwin showcases the Irish writer’s matchless language, humor and humanity. Appearing with Irwin in the New York premiere is Finn O’Sullivan, an eighth-grade student at Saint David’s School in Manhattan and a prolific actor.
