1.0 star rating Richard Mailman from Los Angeles, California


The worst thing I've seen in my entire life. I never leave a show, ever. I left at intermission. So ridiculously "woke" that it makes absolutely no sense. I'm all for exploring new ways to interpret the text and staging of a show. That's what theater is all about. But this is so blatantly "inclusive" that it's not. Not to mention that the staging, originally designed to be performed in the round and ineptly restaged for proscenium stages, is absolutely awful. And if someone can explain to me the purpose of playing the climactic first act scene complete in the dark and devoid of any emotion, I'd love to hear it. I want my money back!

I was so looking forward to this show after listening to the Broadway CD over and over. Finally a production of OKLAHOMA without some fancy semi-operatic vocals! But the touring company is SO mis-cast it hurts to write this. The standout is Sasha Hutchings as Laurey. But the rest of the cast looked like they were plucked out of a college production. WTF! What happened to their accents early on in the show?? Was Aunt Eller a college drama teacher selected to fill in for an ailing student?? And I felt nothing but pity for poor Judd - there was NOTHING menacing about his interpretation. (I blame the director for this) The actor had the strongest male voice, but he was presented as such a victim that shooting him could not be justified in my mind. Don't get me started on Ado Annie and Will. Overall - a great reworking with a mediocre cast - except for Laurey - she was outstanding!

Tedious production. One of the worst plays in my 44 years as an Ahmanson season ticket holder. Out of courtesy to the performers we stayed after intermission. Many others did not. Save your money.

An insult to the audience. Namely, poor set design, staging, lighting, and choreography; mediocre singing; and miscasting. The attempt to insert current ideologies within an acclaimed musical were confusing, didn't make sense and, at times, were crude and distasteful. The cast appeared bored and lacked energy throughout the entire performance; the dance sequences were sophomoric; darkened stage sequences with black/white headshots projected against the backwall had no relevance. I would not recommend seeing it nor recommend taking your family to see it. An acclaimed musical was turned into embarrassing theatre, while insulting the amazingly talented people who work hard to bring great theatre to the public.

Very disappointed. Wanted to leave 3 minutes after it started.

1.0 star rating Bill from Los Angeles, California


Why changed the story and the casting is strange. This gotta be the worse musical ever produced. Worse director and worse dance. Why inserted an unusual solo dance in the 2nd half that makes no sense?

I read good reviews, read an interview with the director, and as someone with theater background and deep appreciation of good musicals well-performed & innovatively imagined, I was looking forward to this staging of the classic show. And I was appalled. Everything from the amateurish, high school musical set, static (boring) staging, inexplicable lighting choices, weak, sometimes laughable choreography, and range of singers from mediocre to good-but-uninspired, left me stunned by the sheer “unlikeableness” of the show, its characters and story arch. If something edgy & "vivid" was intended, what came across was goofy, self-indulgent & unengaging. I didn't care about these people, I found certain elements sophomoric, even crass, & was desperate for something authentic and moving to happen. It hadn't by the end of the first act & by then we couldn't tolerate another minute... and we weren't the only ones from grumbling around us as we fled. The musicians, however, were good.
