About the show

Over 75 years after Rodgers & Hammerstein reinvented the American musical, this is "Oklahoma!" as you’ve never seen it before – reimagined for the 21st century. Winner of the 2019 Tony for Best Musical Revival. More…

Stripped down to reveal the darker psychological truths at its core, Daniel Fish’s production tells a story of a community circling its wagons against an outsider, and the violence of the frontier that shaped America. Upending the sunny romance of a farmer and a cowpoke, this "Oklahoma!" allows the classic musical – and our country – to be seen in a whole new light.

2h 45m | Ends Jan 19 | Circle in the Square (Midtown W)

This revival misses the mark, Edgy, Ambitious, Disappointing

See it if you like: the songs from the original Oklahoma; an ambitious take on a timeless classic; an intimate theater experience.

Don't see it if you like the original Oklahoma: this revival is pared down (small band on stage/smallish cast) and its edginess misses the mark.

Slow, Disappointing

See it if You love the music of the original

Don't see it if You are expecting scenery costumes great voices large orchestral numbers You are expecting a production like the former productions

Refreshing, Profound, Entertaining, Clever, Absorbing

See it if you’d enjoy the remastering of a classic. See it breath new light , with different perspectives on the same lyrics and book. Shocking? Yes!

Don't see it if You think no update needed, a purist and cant see R&H’s works changed. The artistic liberties taken with the ending would give an aneurism!

During previews
Slow, Overrated, Excruciating, Disappointing, Dizzying

See it if You are interested in lighting. The lighting was amazing!

Don't see it if Just don't do it...bad acting and long boring songs

Masterful, Great staging, A classic

See it if you want to see an "updated" Oklahoma. It's not as dark as anticipated by the buzz. Very good performances and really creative staging.

Don't see it if You have seen Oklahoma previously. It's just not that"new".

See it if you love the music and are open minded. I was very impressed with the staging. I loved the barn dance atmosphere.

Don't see it if you're a purist.

Also I wasn't fond of all the choices made but I went home singing!

Long, Different, Strange, Disappointing

See it if You want to see a brand new spin on a traditional musical. You don’t mind minimalist staging, and don’t expect large ensemble numbers.

Don't see it if You only like traditional theatre. You are an Oklahoma purist. You like traditional casting and staging. You like a big cast and ensemble.

Also Wow. I really wanted to like this show. Loved Ali Stroker as Ado Annie... Read more Read less

See it if You want to see a new take on a classic or want some pretty decent chili and cornbread at intermission.

Don't see it if You're a traditionalist and cannot appreciate changes/adaptations. A spoiler, but don't go if you can't handle gun shots or smoke/steam.

Also Oklahoma has never been one of my favorite shows - I tend not to like ... Read more Read less

See it if you are interested in a new take on the classic show. They really take it and make the show something new, and Curly was amazing.
