After we sent out the letter from the Dramatist Guild urging you to contact the U.S. Postal Service regarding a commemorative stamp, we started reminiscing and looking through our collections of first issue stamps that we just love—and of course, why we think it’s so important for these stamps to be created!
Of course, this is one of our favorites. It’s kind of hard to pick A favorite, but this would be close—given our history with Oklahoma! and Rodgers & Hammerstein. We (and by we, I mean The Theatre Guild, which at that time was under direction of Lawrence and Armina Langner and Theresa Helburn) opened Oklahoma! on Broadway March 31, 1943 at the St. James Theatre. It ran for 5 years with over 2,212 performances—by far the most successful play of its time!
We have always loved this play—and movie! You can watch it instantly on Amazon or to purchase it and watch it anytime, you can find it on our Amazon store!
