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.
See it if This show is going to be divisive, and I understand why. But I loved it. It's raw and bleak and dark and uncomfortable and funny and weird,
Don't see it if but if you go in with an open mind, willing to reimagine a classic, you'll be rewarded. It's the most experimental musical I've seen on...

See it if You can't resist R&H musicals. Music is still beautiful & lyrics inspiring. Performances were mostly delightful. Congrats to Mary Testa.
Don't see it if You can't bear to see revisions to an old favorite. Using modern video techniques don't work as well as actors speaking face to face.
See it if you have to see the latest hot show. This one gets lots of buzz. It is certainly a unique take on this classic.
Don't see it if you want shows to have cohesive concepts that makes sense. This show is a mess. Changes in tone, meaning don't make sense. I hated it.

Don't see it if somehow nothing matches-neither the music with the voices, nor the set with the story. I had high expectations, but left disappointed.

Don't see it if you insist on Oklahoma being traditional . Though I'd argue that you should. It's an eye opener. So I guess if you don't want them opened...
See it if you must, but this show is sorely lacking in talent. If mediocre voices, annoying bright lights or pitch-black darkness is your thing, go.

See it if You want to see a brilliant unique take on a R&H classic. Beautiful staging, lighting, acting/singing, orchestrations.
