OKLAHOMA is the first musical written by the team of
composer richard Rodgers and librettist Oscar Hammerstein.
The original Broadway production opened March 31 1943.
A box-office smash, it ran for an unprecedented 2,243 performances
This is one favorite spot in the play for me:
"With you it's all er nuthin.
All fer you an nuthin' fer me!
But if a wife is wise, she's gotta realize
that men like you are wild and free.
So I ain't gonna fuss, ain't gonna frown,
Have your fun, go out on the town,
Stay up late and don't come home till three.
And go right off to sleep, if you're sleepy,
There's no use waitin' up for me...."
