This performance and cast was just OK. Brought my theater kid teen to see one of the classics and felt like the cast was adequate and the some scenes felt just disconnected. We go to a lot of shows and unfortunately this one didn't hold up for me. I was expecting quality like the show we saw in Sacramento last week of The Color Purple which had an outstanding cast and performance.

I went to the theatre to see a happy, historical musical. Shouldn't have wasted the gas. While the performers were very good, I have to wonder what is the motivation to make the original uplifiting work into a dark, overly melodramatic and contrived musical with awful costumes and character presentation.

Saw opening night at The Ahmanson in LA. Multiple walkouts in the mezzanine. I powered through. I actually like the re-interpretation of classic Broadway - but this was a debacle. The only reason I'm giving it two stars is because it was such a wild creative swing - that I appreciated the "attempt." I kid you not - there was twerking and grinding during "I'm Just A Girl Who Can't Say No." At the start of the second act there was an insane interpretive dance with a girl wearing a T-shirt that said "Dream Baby Dream." I wish I were kidding. And the ending had a blood splattered bride and groom - an homage to Sam Peckinpah? I really felt sorry for the cast. Oh, one more thing - in the program it said the production was "gun-neutral" - even though there was fatal gun violence (a plot point that wasn't in the original BTW). What the....?

Pretty disappointing to see a high school play on Broadway I have seen musicals on Broadway and plenty of films made from musicals on Broadway and this seriously disappoints. I like the idea of doing something new and different with a previously interpreted play but this one fails wish I could love it but I can't Saw the original watch the movie and I'm not talking about the content or the interpretation I'm talking about the execution.

So disappointed. I wanted to like this revised “Oklahoma” and I just could not. I did like the two leads who portrayed Laurry and Curly: They each have a lovely voice, and Curly’s musicianship was artful. The Jud character reminded me of a teenage shooter and this was unsettling. When the lights went out and there was spoken dialogue it did not feel intimate and revelatory but uncomfortable and awkward. This story is full of misogyny and easy violence and Daniel Fish was right to draw this out. I like new things, I love to learn and my thinking to be challenged but this production did not hold together for me. Again, so sad.

I am not sure I knew what to expect but that was definitely not it. I was bored within the first 5 minutes. The set was very basic and not what I would expect from a Broadway musical. The sound was barely audible and muddled throughout the show. It was just underwhelming. I was actually counting down the songs until intermission so we could leave. Unfortunately, we were not the only ones with the same idea. There was a stream of cars trying to leave the parking lot along with us. I am guessing they lost quite a bit of the audience at intermission.

This is my first experience with Oklahoma, and I have never struggled so much to follow a storyline. With no background knowledge about the story itself, but expectations for a bright, simple, fun musical filled with dancing and dresses and singing, I was extremely disappointed. Not only were the actors difficult to hear, it was hard to understand what was happening since almost everyone was on stage at all times. I loved that people from different cultures, backgrounds, religions, and gender identities were chosen for this show, but that was the only statement that it made. It would have been more powerful to see all of those people succeeding in a story that actually made sense, Hamilton is a great example of casting this way. We left at intermission after some very confusing scenes, and an entire story line that had absolutely no flow, no chemistry, and no spark of the original Oklahoma I’ve heard so much of. very disappointing, and I believe that it was to no fault of the actors.
