Butler was wonderful as Aunt Eller, and in fact, she and Gamble were both nominated for Helen Hayes Awards for their performances.

Another Hayes nominee was Cody Williams, who played Will. He's gone on to appear on Broadway in ''Memphis'' and ''On the Town.''

This ''Oklahoma!'' won 4 Helen Hayes Awards, including Best Resident Musical, Choreography and Actor in a Musical (for Nicholas Rodriguez).

As for LeKae, she was announced to play Laurey, but 10 days before the opening, she withdrew due to ''pressing personal matters.''

Gamble took over after that. ... In 2013, I saw LeKae in ''Motown the Musical,'' which earned her a Tony nomination and a Theatre World Award.

As for the ending, I'm pretty sure it was the traditional one (with Curly falling on his knife). I'd recall if they had vastly changed it.
