Oklahoma! launched the Golden Age of the American Musical and marked the first collaboration between composer Richard Rodgers and Lyricist/librettist Oscar Hammerstein II. The first of the nine musicals they wrote together, Oklahoma! was a milestone in its merging of story, song and dance. Set in the Oklahoma territory outside the town of Claremore in 1906, it tells the story of cowboy Curly McLain and his romance with farm girl Laurey Williams; who will take her to the box social-Curly or the sinister Jud Fry.
