How was your experience?
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, and Ado Annie who is absolutely delightful and only a senior in high school. I was in the top row and still had an excellent view in this theater in the round. I did have a little trouble discerning every word when actors were facing away from me, but they shifted constantly so it was never an issue for long. I had not been to Arena since the renovation and loved the light and open spaces in the lobby/restaurant. Surprisingly you can buy a full dinner at reasonable prices. Next time I will have more than a glass of wine and red velvet cup cake.
