I may have a new tagline for my As-Yet-Unannounced Animated Musical: it’s not Terminator meets West Side Story; it’s Swordfish meets Oklahoma!
But I’m already too late. Starting Saturday, PBS will broadcast the Royal National Theater’s 2002 revival of Oklahoma! starring hacker, mutant, and musical theater whore, Hugh Jackman.
Salon. For once, I didn’t make it past the ad
Oklahoma! on PBS, starring Hugh Jackman
Hugh Jackman starring as Peter Allen, Liza Minnelli’s gay husband (is there any other kind?) in The Boy from Oz (I’m leaving a whole HBO joke on the table there, you know.)
It turns out the National Theater revival was already the occasion for a post, but from an anthro/cult stud perspective.
