Theatre Tulsa has been nothing if not ambitious for its 92nd season, beginning with the monthlong run last summer of “Les Miserables.”

The company’s latest offering, the John Kander-Fred Ebb-Bob Fosse creation “Chicago,” is almost as ambitious in size and scope as “Les Miserables.”

And it’s almost as successful in achieving its aims — not as completely, perhaps, but close enough.

August: Osage County tells the story of the Weston family and their unexpected reunion after their father disappears. As the story unfolds, their Oklahoman family homestead explodes in a maelstrom of repressed truths and unsettling secrets. Mix in Violet, the drugged-up, scathingly acidic matriarch, and you’ve got a major new play that unflinchingly—and uproariously—exposes the dark side of the Midwestern American family.  August: Osage County received five Tony Awards, the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, as well as numerous other awards.

 The last time “August: Osage County” played Tulsa, it was January 2010, when the Broadway touring production starring Academy Award winner Estelle Parsons came to the Tulsa PAC.

Naturally, so did the snow and ice that ended up cutting the run short.

 Radio station KMOK is far from OK. Of the three radios stations serving the Tulsa area in 1949, it ranks fourth in popularity.

Shows such as the “Cowpoke Comedy Cavalcade” and “The Tulsa Shadow” aren’t able to compete with this new-fangled invention called television that just started broadcasting in town.

And now comes word that the station’s major sponsor is planning to move all its business to the new TV station.
