The Young Vic has confirmed programming through spring 2022, including a London premiere of the 2019 Broadway revival of Oklahoma! The Young Vic will also house the world premiere of Anthony McCarten’s The Collaboration. 

The Oklahoma! production at the Young Vic is a London transfer of the 2019 Broadway revival, which won a Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical. Oklahoma! follows a love triangle between farm girl Laurey, cowboy Curly and farmhand Jud. Oklahoma! features songs by Rodgers and Hammerstein, including “Oh What A Beautiful Mornin’” and “I Cain’t Say No.” 

In a review of Oklahoma! for New York Theatre Guide, “In the end, this will not be what you expected, but you may find yourself connected to these folks in a way you did not foresee.”

Daniel Fish directs Oklahoma!, with choreography by John Heginbotham, scenic design by Laura Jellinek, costume design by Terese Wadden, lighting design  by Scott Zielinski, and sound design by Drew Levy. Casting for Oklahoma! is to be announced. Oklahoma! is at the Young Vic from 26 April to 25 June. 

Before Oklahoma!, the Young Vic will be home to the world premiere of Anthony McCarten’s The Collaboration. Set in 1980s New York, The Collaboration follows a shared journey between Jean-Michel Basquiat and Andy Warhol, redrawing their worlds.

Now best known for playing Vision in the Marvel films, Paul Bettany will return to the London stage to play Andy Warhol. He’s joined by the Tony Award-nominated actor Jeremy Pope as Jean-Michel Basquiat, who will make his London stage debut in The Collaboration. Kwame Kwei-Armah will direct, with design by Anna Fleischle, sound design by Emma Laxton. The Collaboration is at the Young Vic from 16 February to 2 April.
