I've attended better presentations of Broadway musicals at a junior college. The music is king in Oklahoma, but not this edition of Oklahoma. It was an awful distortion of one of the greatest musicals ever presented on the Broadway stage. The lesson to be learned: don't mess with perfection.

1.0 star rating George from Los Angeles, California


This is a great lesson on how to take a perfectly entertaining R&H musical and turn it into a woke pile of steamy excrement. I admit that despite the austere set, the music had me smiling and on the edge of my seat for the first twenty minutes when the R*H score reigned supreme. It quickly devolved into the aforementioned pile of you know what. The thought that this could pass for entertainment is baffling. Even more baffling was the fact that the cast received a standing "O" at the conclusion. Or maybe, folks who endured to the end were just anxious to leave and immediately stood, anxious for a return to sanity. Save your money and valuable time, and stream the entertaining version of Oklahoma as seen in the 1955 movie where you'll actually see actors who seemly enjoy acting.

Bad. I've been attending plays in LA for over 50 years. Second time I've left at intermission. Cast was talented, good singing, and the musicians were great. But the overall feel of the play was dark, dreary, no flow between the songs. Kept thinking WHY ruin such an iconic play? I don't mind updating, but if you change so much of the play, why call it Oklahoma? Best part of the afternoon was leaving early to drive to Pasadena for a meal at Twoheys restaurant.

We left at the intermission. Struggled to find anything positive about the show. Dull set design, dull songs and dull story. Not for us.

From the lazy staging to the inexplicable casting it’s Ana big that this lackluster sub high school production exists at all. Only go if you enjoy epic train wrecks populated by folks they seemed to have pulled off of the sidewalk. Pure hell.

I knew going in this was a reimagined piece of a classic Rodgers & Hammerstein show. I'd read some previous reviews and watched clips of performances. So I had an idea of what to expect. But this version fell far below my expectations. The songs and dialogue are pretty much intact from the original. But the song interpretations are slow, plodding and downright boring. The Laurie's Dream ballet sequence was a mess. I couldn't figure out what the dancer was attempting to portray. And the music behind the ballet scene sounded like the ghost of Jimi Hendrix. Some scenes are played in complete darkness, which is very eerie, but not in a good way. The ending was very dark and bloody. What was the point? The typically rousing show stopper Oklahoma at the end did not inspire the hope for the future of the original production. I've never seen so many people leave at intermission. I can sum it all up in one word. I just don't know if that word should be awful, horrible or terrible.

First the high point. The singing was good. That’s it, only one. Definitely not the Oklahoma we were expecting. This was dark, depressing, confusing. There are some classics that should be left alone in their greatness, this is one of them. Hard to follow story as voices did not project up to our balcony seats. Gunshots were over the top loud. Why was Laurey so angry, didn’t fit well. Wanted to leave at intermission but got talked into staying. Act II opening dance session was strange and didn’t fit. Finally the cast sang the title song which was well done. Should have ended there on the high note. Finale was disturbing and reinforced the intuition to leave at intermission. Would not recommend spending your money or time. Empathy towards the cast as their talent is overshadowed by a distasteful presentation.
