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,... continued

What a fun production and an incredible use of space - "theatre-in-the-square". The seating was intimate and the cast really gave it their all - especially in Act II. ... continued

A brilliant production of the classic- the singing and dancing were stellar (in fact, better than a few on-Broadway shows I've seen). Ado Annie and Will were standouts,... continued

Hands-down the most fun I've had in a long time at a musical, and the best choreography I've seen in a long time. From beginning to end, it was engaging, beautiful, fun and incredibly well done. The reviews don't lie about this one!

Solid cast, entertaining performance. Having seen both the original on Broadway and the subsequent movie I can attest to the fact that this production compares favorably and is well worth attending.

This was a ton of fun! It was done as theater-in-the-round so the actors had a lot of movement around the stage. The singing and dancing were excellent, especially Will... continued

This was such a high energy performance in all respects. The dancing was first rate - high kicks and jumps, perfect coordination. The voices were beautiful to hear. I am so glad we got to see this.

What fun! A 'pared-down' production (big ensemble singing limited to Act 2, overture not performed) in some ways, but an enthusiastic cast makes this a nice production. ... continued

Wonderful familiar songs energetically performed.
Acting, dancing, musical direction everything was first class and very exciting. The chorus of expert singers and dancers was especially great.

Don't miss this classic. Not only is the acting, singing and dancing superb but I had forgotten just how funny the "book" is and this cast did a great job with the humor... continued
