I loved Oklahoma I really want to see it Here s my analysis The Musical Oklahoma, with music by Richard Rogers, and book and lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II, is considered the first true book musical This is because the songs, music and dance of the show are well integrated into the musical and help tell the story and further the plot In fact, the songs are so well integrated, they don t even have titles, the musical just jumps right into them For example, in the song Por Jud is Daid , Cu I loved Oklahoma I really want to see it Here s my analysis The Musical Oklahoma, with music by Richard Rogers, and book and lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II, is considered the first true book musical This is because the songs, music and dance of the show are well integrated into the musical and help tell the story and further the plot In fact, the songs are so well integrated, they don t even have titles, the musical just jumps right into them For example, in the song Por Jud is Daid , Curly easily alternates between singing and talking CURLY He s all laid out to restWith his hands across his chest.His fingernails have never b en so clean JUD turns slowly to question the good taste of this last reference, but CURLY plunges straight into another item of the imagined wake Nen the preacher d git up and he d say 1.2.Older musicals such as Show Boat, and Pal Joey, do not have such as ease of transitioning between talking and singing There s a set time to sing and a set time to talk But in Oklahoma, you never know when characters could easily slip into song Music is treated differently, there are snatches of songs throughout, and refrains, music is not a side part of the story, it is the story.Dances too are not just an extra bit on top of the show For example, the Dream Ballet in Oklahoma, uses music and dance to tell Laurey s deepest fears, and show that she truly does love Curly 1.3.Another difference is the depth songs give to a character Songs in Oklahoma, tell us what the characters are thinking and gives us deeper insight into what they want, and are fighting for, while songs from earlier shows would tell us about about a character, it often was only one aspect of the character songs in Oklahoma, give us well rounded characters I think the song Lonely Room , sung by Jud, does really shows his character, and helps the viewer understand him, to the point of pitying him JUD And all the things I wish fer Turn out like I want them to be, And I m better n that Smart Aleck cowhand Who thinks he is better n me And the girl that I want Ain t afraid of my arms, And her own soft arms keep me warm.With Oklahoma, the lyrics to the songs are just as important as the music that goes along with them Oscar Hammerstein, carefully thought through his libretto, while earlier plays I feel did not always think so carefully about their words With lyrics that are poetry, like Oklahoma, Where the wind comes sweepin down the plain, And the wavin wheat Can sure smell sweet When the wind comes right behind the rain 2.3 Thus, Oklahoma broke away from earlier musicals, through the use of music and dance to tell the story and give further insights into the characters What else can I say, except You re doin fine, Oklahoma Oklahoma, O.K , 2.3 Oklahoma , screenplay by Sonya Levien, William Ludwig, based on dramatic play by Lynn RiggsOklahoma has won two Academy Awards and was nominated for a further two at the Ceremony in 1956However, this viewer must state upfront that he was not crazy about this musical, in spite of its poster image with It s Here The best loved Musical

one of the greatest actors of all time, there was little to make it so resplendent.The plot is simple, maybe too crude, even if that should be compensated by the music and dancing.Indeed, there are a couple of songs that even this critical spectator enjoyed and the modern ballet was impressive.The Surrey With The Fringe on Top was one of the favorite chants, notwithstanding the crudeness of the lines Chicks and ducks and geese better scurryWhen I take you out in the surrey,When I take you out in the surrey with the fringe on top The verses of the songs do not contrast however with the manner of speaking of the protagonists.None of them has attended school.Well, not forthan two years.They say You was, they is on a regular basis.And Now For Something Completely Different Monty Python masterpieces these are films that one should see instead of losing time with Oklahoma Some of the characters involved do have Signature Strengths and I refer here to Curly McLain, simple but also showing Vitality, Love, Kindness, Persistence he sells everything he has, Bravery, Appreciation of Beauty and ExcellenceGratitude, Hope, some Humor, Modesty, Perspective and When his nemesis and rival for the affection of Ado Annie Carnes is bidding for lunch with her, the hero takes this to an extreme.Curly has only five dollars to use to gain permission to lunch with the woman he loves, in a charity event.However, when Jud Fry, the evil personage portrayed by the genius actor Rod Steiger, outbids him, the romantic hero gives all he has.First, he sells his saddle for ten dollars, and then he gives away his horse for fifteen and finally sells his pistol.That is commendable.Perhaps outstanding, glorious.The other song that I have enjoyed is Oh What A Beautiful Morning Oh, what a beautiful mornin ,Oh, what a beautiful day.I got a beautiful feelin Ev rything s goin my way Oklahoma Has been remarked upon by The New York Times, albeit it is somewhat hard to see why.It is on the prestigious newspaper s list of Best 1,000 Movies Ever Made A great piece of musical history, and fun to watch although the dream sequence was WEIRD As per the usual, the songs were better than the script.
