Oklahoma! Broadway National Tour: Juneteenth with Sis & Ugo Chukwu
Bonus Episode! The Oklahoma! Broadway National Tour has made headlines for taking an innovative spin on a beloved “classic American” musical. While many hold classics near and dear to their hearts, recent revivals force us to reckon with the way in which classical musicals have most often been centered around a White American experience. Considering Oklahoma (the state) is home to more historically all-Black towns than any other U.S state and in honor of Juneteenth — listen to Sis (Ado Annie in Oklahoma!) and Ugo Chukwu (Cord Elam in Oklahoma!) unpack their unique experiences as Black actors in the new Oklahoma! and what it's like to be a Black creative in a tumultuous theatre industry.
