Trite and insulting stereotypes of what New York songwriters think of the rest of the country.

There is not a bad seat in the house at Arena Stage. The cast immediately brings you right into the show with their amazing energy. The music is timeless and enveloping. Only wish there was sing-along segment! Plan to have a great time!

It was so much funnier than we expected. Everyone next to us was laughing as well. It's a small stage so every seat has a good view. FYI no pictures allowed before or during the show.

A different version than you remember from the movie and better. A multi-racial cast; s square center stage that puts you close to all the action; interesting choreography -- all make for a more relevant and interesting perfromance.

It's never been one of my favorite musicals -- thin on plot and characterization, having precious little to do with Oklahoma (territory or state). However, this production got the most possible out of the story and songs. Several performances...continued

Incredible singing (we had a stand in for Curly, whose voice was superb, diction perfect). The orchestra did not sound tinny, but more like a full orchestra. The dancing was most energetic. How they blocked all of those moves on that stage is...continued

I would be hard pressed to name a weak link in the cast but it is very easy however to name the strongest and they are the quartet of male leads, Nicholas Rodriguez as the hero Curly, Cody Williams as lovable side kick Will Parker, Aaron Ramey as...continued

First, the seats were perfect! Second, the acting, singing, and dancing were the best I've ever experienced in a live production! Third, the staging was surprising and wonderful! We actually purchased 4 tickets and some friends went with us and...continued

Entertaining singing/acting/dancing. But simplistic plot/storyline/dialog. The secondary love triangle/sub-plot was well-conceived and humorous.

The venue The Arena Stage is now simply the finest in DC. The renovation added a plethora of...continued

Wonderful performances -- beautiful voices and very good dancers -- and very clever staging. The story is silly, but if you like musicals at all, you won't care about that.

Great production which warrants the rave reviews it got. Our tickets were about as far from the stage as possible, but still the view was excellent.

This performance was outstanding! Of course Oaklahoma has so many wonderful songs and all the singers did a great job in presenting them. The very athletic dancers added excitement to the performance and the staging was excellent. A well earned...continued
