Cowboys, farmers and damsels in distress bring the Great Plains to life in Tulane Summer Lyric's production of the Rodgers and Hammerstein classic Oklahoma! Curly McLain is a dapper cowboy who is in love with farm girl Laurey, to the despair of farm boy Jud Fry. Tensions escalate, and Laurey eventually must choose between the two, and everyone knows the farmers and the ranchers are sworn enemies. In the last production of Tulane Summer Lyric Theatre's summer season, director Edmond Kresley says he aims to make the play darker and more realistic. Kresley directs Melissa Marshal, Chase Kamata, Steven Lucas, Beverly Trask, Lee Bailey and Lorenzo Gonzales in this tale of country romance. — Allison Good
