Outstanding! Although it is an old show it was still fresh. The production was great and the dancing and singing were wonderful.

Joyous production. Fine acting, superb dancing! High energy. I loved it and that when it was over there was sunshine when I thought rain was expected. It couldn't have been better.

The cast did a good job bringing life to a beloved, but dated, Broadway milestone. Both singing and acting were a joy. The only negative for us -- although admittedly a matter of personal taste -- was that we were not fond of the austere staging...continued

We saw Oklahoma on Wednesday evening. The Fischlander Theater at Arena Stage is in the round and an excellent size. All seats seem to have a great view. The music, voices, and staging were very good. However, the play was too long. It is...continued

Talent was good, choreography fun -- but it failed to elicit any emotional response from my 15 year old daughter or myself.

The play was excellent from beginning to end. I enjoyed the acting, dancing and singing. The venue was great as there was not a bad seat in the house.

Singing and dancing were terrific. Very energetic cast . Great set. Only gripe: wish the performers weren't miked, or at least that the levels were set better--these are very strong singers. Also I don't recommend seating in the A rows if...continued

The show was great. There really isn't a bad seat in the house. We were 4 rows back and had a great view. The stage is surrounded by seats at this theater which makes for a fun experience.
