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.

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

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

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

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.

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 as well as the drama. Even though Arena is theater in the round we never...continued

This show is a must see! Great singing, dancing and acting. Can't get some of the tunes out of my head! The only negative was the $9 charge for a glass of inexpensive white wine!

The performance was wonderful! It stayed very close to the classic, but was able to put its own flare to it. The entire cast was superb, but Kudos to the performers who played Ado Annie, Curly, Al Hakim, and Will Parker.

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

What a wonderful surprise to find that my son and I had third row seats that were right next to some of the props. Thus, it was great to find the cast so close to us. Oklahoma was all what the raves were about and more. Great cast, great...continued
