Great. Brought back memories of listening to my parents' records as a kid in the UK. Sang along to the songs.. The dancers and singers were all wonderful although my 25yr old didn't appreciate it as much as me (I'm turning 60). Being British-half...continued

I was so happy I was there to see cutie pie, Kirsten Dunst look-alike and magical local talent June Schreiner as Ado Annie. She with Cody Williams as Will Parker made the show a Must See. Eleasha Gamble as Laurey and Nicholas Rodriguez as Curly...continued

My teenage daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed this. Neither of us are really into broad humor or western themed stuff generally but this production was magnificent - lively, funny, terrific singing and dancing. The theater is small so really all...continued

The new Arena Stage is a beautiful building! Give yourself enough time to check out the whole area, plus the restaurant.
"Oklahoma" is a glorious musical, and the production deserves all the accolades it got. What I loved most about the excellent...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. The orchestra was terrific, it was anice touch when they joined the show on...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, for making pretty corny songs and dances seem innovative and fresh. And Judd...continued

Go see this exuberant and moving production of Oklahoma. The performances (voice, acting, dance) are excellent. I thought the dream sequence was especially well-done and Curly and Jud were stand-outs. My only small quibble was that it was...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!

leads are good singers, dancers and actors. All of the dancing is very good; the choreography is great, though the Arena does not have enough space for the full complement of a Broadway show cast. The story was never the reason for seeing...continued

My second time: first with my husband and then with my 6-year-old grandson. My grandson made sure we were staying after intermission to see "the WHOLE thing" and then talked about maybe getting onstage some day to sing and dance "like they did". ...continued

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.

The casting was excellent and the singing and dancing were surperb. There is a rather "dark" scene in the play that may necessitate conversation between parents an kids, but overall the musical was fun and made for a great evening. The DC...continued

The singing and dancing were excellent. The acting was not bad, but not as good as the singing and dancing.

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 Parker and Ado Annie, and the group ensembles. Parking in the nearby $10 lot...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.

We laughed and applauded and hooted our way through this outstanding performance. The entire show was A+, but the choreography made us breathless. Thank you, Arena Theater, for giving us a chance to see it after it was sold out last year, and...continued
