The 5th Avenue Theatre has set plans to host panel discussions and a Town Hall meeting to engage audiences about the portrayal of race in the current presentation of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Oklahoma! Called “provocative” by the Seattle Times, this new production features an African American actor as the antagonist, sparking vigorous discussion among audiences about racism both in 1907 (when the musical is set), and in society and the arts today.
