Rodgers and Hammerstein’s timeless musical Oklahoma! takes over Arizona Broadway Theatre’s stage with relentless energy and gravity-defying choreography that enchants audiences of all ages. Meticulously staged in the prairie world of the 1900s, when cowboys sang with fearless vibrato and the wind had manners, Oklahoma! spins a sweet-natured tale of love while lauding America’s persevering spirit. From feel-good mantras such as “Oh, What a Beautiful Morning” to buggy-boasts like “The Surrey with the Fringe on Top,” the mercilessly catchy numbers of Oklahoma! earn tenure in every craw they crawl in, inspiring audiences to sing, dance, and race west on horseback to claim their neighbor's patio.
Arizona Broadway Theatre
A Peoria fixture since 2004, Arizona Broadway Theatre combines performances with fine dining, a marriage that helped garner the title of Best Playhouse from PHOENIX magazine in 2010. Curtains open to a cast of talented performers, who were culled from auditions in New York and the Valley of the Sun, and have belted out Broadway staples such as Grease, Fiddler on the Roof, and Singin' in the Rain. Servers glide through the tiered theater hall prior to performances, peppering white tablecloths with platefuls of American fare. Previous show's menus have included such dishes as steak diane's sliced tenderloin paired with sautéed shallots and lyonnaise potatoes, which entertain patrons' stomachs without forcing them to eat the show's program.
