You have got to go see Oklahoma at Arena Stage. The theatre in the round staging, literally lets you see the show from all angles. And since the audience members can be seen, their facial expressions, laughter and overall engagement in the...continued

Probably the best staged version of Oklahoma I've seen. Great singing, believable acting, and fantastic choreography. Definitely one not to miss.

This is one of the best shows ever performed in DC. Lots of energy, great voices, amazing dancing. It should go to Broadway!

Seeing Oklahoma was like being reunited with an old friend who looks even better than you remember. T
he production is fresh and creative. The cast was superb, especially the male lead who received a well-deserved Helen Hayes award last season,...continued

Very good production that includes music that was not in the film.
If you like dance, you'll appreciate the show even more.

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

Excellent show with a very talented, energetic cast. Music and choreography were great. It's easy to see why the show garnered four Helen Hayes awards and many additional nominations. Highly recommend!

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

Oklahoma is a great musical, and Arena performed it well. Nicholas Rodriguez as Curly was excellent, but a little amplification takes something away from the pure voice.
One big complaint: For those with a mobility disability, it is stunning that...continued

The actors were terrific. They all sang and danced wonderfully. Theater in the round gives you a completely different perspective on a show, even a classic like Oklahoma!.

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.

Some of the cast was stronger than others---the actors playing Curly, Ali, and Aunt Eller really stole the show. It seemed like some of the other leads were either singers or dancers, but not really both. It was sometimes hard to understand the...continued
