Musicals and TV star Gary Wilmot is currently in Sheffield, starring in an acclaimed new version of the favourite musical, Oklahoma!
Gary plays the comic character Ali Hakim, a womanising travelling pedaller roaming the Wild West, who suddenly finds that his love ‘em and leave ‘em days may be numbered…
In this backstage video chat to Star theatre writer Julia Armstrong, he talks about the show – and about how difficult it is to get something to eat in Sheffield when the snooker’s in town!
The Rodgers and Hammerstein show features classic songs such as the title number, I Cain’t Say No, The Surrey With The Fringe on Top, Kansas City and People Will Say We’re in Love.
Gary stars alongside Belinda Lang from 1990s sitcom 2point4 Children and a vibrant young cast in the show.
Oklahoma! is at the Lyceum from July 21 to August 1. Box office: at the Crucible, call 0114 249 6000 or go online at www.sheffieldtheatres.co.uk
