I was in the front row last night...luckily did Not get drenched in Bud light like the people on other end of front row, I got a few drops on my clothing and bag. My biggest point here - Why warn me about "loud gunshots" (which ushers DO, at seating, for each guest) but say Nothing about getting sprayed with beer. Unacceptable. It's not a rough music concert, it's a broadway show! I can't get pass that, it's so offensive, gross, and unwanted! I'm into shows that make you think etc, I was very open to a new interpretation....but I just think this was Bad. I strongly advise Not taking young children to show. Lead actor (Laurey) had the most beautiful singing voice though

I had never seen Oklahoma and was very excited to see it at the Forrest theater in Philadelphia. I was incredibly disappointed. Although the actors were very very good and had wonderful voices the set was awful the choreography was awful. Extremely boring. The attempt to make it more modern made it awkward and hard to follow. They need to get a real choreographer for the show. The modern dance the of the second act added nothing to the show. Although she was a fabulous dancer. It just prolong the agony. Also the prop man was out on stage in the middle of two different scenes bringing out or taking back props. So weird. If you’re going to do that at least put them in a flannel shirt and have them takeoff his mask and headset. Please don’t waste your money going to the show .

Eight hours later and I am still stunned by how bad it was. There was no change in scenery, and the characters were just... odd. I understand the "woke" philosophy but was still difficult to get past some of the poor casting. The finale with Laurey and Curly singing with bloodied wedding clothes and Laurey jumping around crying and singing at the same time was laughable. This version of Oklahoma was not for me.

Despite how terrible I thought this show was, it will certainly be a memorable one. The Good: -Sis as Ado Annie and Christopher Bannow as Jud were the absolute standouts. Perhaps with larger roles they could have saved the show. -Blackout scenes/light changes added so much tension and intensity. I really enjoyed these. Jud was captivating here. -The physical humor was pretty good. Ado Annie's side story had me cracking up The Bad: (Not sure I can fit this in the full review) -Other people have mentioned it, but the dance "dream" at the start of the 2nd act is laugh out loud bad. Absurdly long and pointless. -Lack of a dynamic set/scene changes made it difficult to get immersed into the show. Orchestra was great, but they were on the stage the entire time. -Some of the cast (and even leads) seemingly did not want to be there -Tried to be "dark" in an artistic way but failed (miserably imo) . -Beer got poured on the audience -Story seemed to lose direction -Unsatisfying end

Repeatedly watch the Gordon MacRae and Hugh Jackman versions! That is the only way to get the bad taste of this one out of your mouth and restore this Classic to its rightful place! JT

As background, my fiancé and I thought that that we were seeing the original Oklahoma, not a revival. We had heard great things about the original and were excited to see this show. This… was… something. The stage was terrible. The stage was a room? With picnic tables the ENTIRE time. They used a back drop of corn fields as doors to for the actors to come in an out of (why not just make them doors?). They had a stage manager in normal clothing & a headset come in and out to grab props, which wasn’t even necessary and it legitimately shocked me. The singing was good and I loved the band. But I had no idea why I should’ve cared about Laurey, Jud, & Curly. The story line that was more interesting was the one with Ado Annie. Kissing scenes were too long. We should’ve gotten warned about gun shots because I jumped out of my seat every time and they made the people next to us leave. The way Jud died in the end made me and my fiancé actually bust out in laughter because he got shot and calmly just sat down afterwards. It was just one of the most mind blowing things I had ever seen. Many people left after intermission.

There was not much dancing. Some of the costumes like Ado Annie’s looked very cheap. I was OK with casting if people of different races as the characters, but the context of the story was not set up well at all. I did not feel like I was in Oklahoma in this time period especially with the dream dance sequence. As a dancer I love seeing dancers but the dance was so out of place & she wore clothes you’d wear today and not 80 years ago. And it did nothing for the story. Overall it was just bad and very amateurish.
