1.0 star rating Steve James from Minneapolis, Minnesota


Dark story aside, none of the cast could sing and casting was terrible. Only one very cheap set. As far as the story goes, Rodgers and Hammerstein are rolling over in their graves. Writers and producers who leverage a famous musical to draw a crowd to a terrible piece of work should be banished from theater.

1.0 star rating Liz Flynn from St. Paul, Minnesota


Dark, no chemistry between actors, difficult hearing the actors speak, dull costumes and set, needless reinterpretation of the story. The only positive was the music. This is a very sad production.

1.0 star rating from Minneapolis, Minnesota


To put things into perspective probably one third of the audience left at intermission. Very difficult to hear the disinterested actors was a major problem. The opening dance interpretation at the start of the second act was terrible and the close up camera scenes were worse. Save your money.

My first thoughts were this is the strangest musical I ever seen and the "story" doesn't make any sense. I totally got the original story and purpose of the details after reading wikipedia. Near the end of the first half another patron was on his cell phone which I found to be rude of course, but after the start of the second half, it dawned in my that the guy was probably just board and done with this musical. Him and his guest were one of the ones that did not come back after intermission. I feel like lots of others are sharing specific details of why this musical didn't work. I was gifted the tickets and honestly was happy that I did not actually pay to see this show. The ending was terrible and really made no sense. None of the characters had any chemistry and I really didn't get the purpose of this version at all.

This is the first time I have ever wanted to walk out during a theatrical performance. This reimagined Oklahoma lacks a set, choreography, proper casting, costuming, and common sense. It is depressing and dark. A young girl sitting behind me began to cry at one point. There are times you will want to cover your ears snd cover eyes. Please leave your kids at home for this disappointment, There is no Rodgers and Hammerstein joy left in this one.

1.0 star rating Paul Christopher from Minneapolis, Minnesota


This was Broadway quality? No way. There was very little spark between actors. Singing voices were at best average. After enduring an uninspired first half we had to leave during the opening of the second act with a screaming electric guitar trying to make music but only succeeding in hurting our eardrums. Just plain bad!!

1.0 star rating Deb K. from Minneapolis, Minnesota


What can be said? Horrid. A deep slide into disconnected/disjointed mental illness. Really a combo plate of mental Illness meets small town hell. From the look of the actors on stage they didn’t want to be there any more than I did. The scripting stays the same yet it’s “modernized” by putting Bud Light on a picnic table, then all of a sudden someone tries to hand whip half and half. Lights stay on, lights go off and occasionally lights change colors. Was like watching a “play “ that’s been loosely put together by a group of deeply disturbed children. If this review seems all over the place, you should see the show. Oh wait no please don’t waist your money.
