Summary

Summary

Before hitting it big stateside in 2000's X-Men, Hugh Jackman impressed London audiences with his performance as Curly in director Trevor Nunn's wildly successful revival of Oklahoma!, a live performance of which was captured for this television and video broadcast. Shot at the Royal National Theater, the performance tells the time-tested tale of Laurey (Josefina Gabrielle) and her struggles to resist the advances of the brutish Jud (Shuler Hensley) in favor of the gentle Curly (Jackman). All of the musical's much-loved tunes are here, including "Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin'," "Surrey With the Fringe on Top," and the title song. Oklahoma! was broadcast on PBS in November 2003, coinciding with its U.S. video release. ~ Michael Hastings, Rovi
