The recent Jerry Herman compilation The Best of Times closes (prematurely) tonight, but all is not bleak on the transfer front. Next up we have the unadulterated pleasure of a West End run for the National's Oklahoma! Trevor Nunn's smash-hit revival is unusual not just for its imaginative depth and zest, but because the men outshine the women. Hugh Jackman, Jimmy Johnston and Shuler Hensley are quite outstanding. And as for Susan Stroman's choreography, I defy you to sit through the Act Two opener without exploding with joy at its exultant conclusion.
