A new musical celebrating Broadway’s legendary lyricist, Oscar Hammerstein II. More…
Derived and inspired from personal correspondence, unpublished lyrics, interviews and rare memoirs, "Sincerely, Oscar" invites the audience to delve into the intimate thoughts and feelings of Oscar Hammerstein II, as told by Oscar in his own words. This show utilizes 3D holographic technology as it explores Oscar’s life, while weaving a melodious tapestry of over 30 of his greatest songs from shows like "The Sound of Music," "Show Boat," "Oklahoma!," "Carousel," "South Pacific," "Allegro," and more.

Don't see it if You not needing an escape to more pleasant times.
See it if If you like Rodgers and Hammerstein music and would enjoy a mini-concert of their hits across Broadway shows with minimal context.
Don't see it if If you are not a fan of Rodgers and Hammerstein‘s music, would not enjoy their songs without context or are bothered by technical effects.
See it if you like a pleasant, high-tech lounge act. With wealth of songs available, this could have been so much better. Interesting hologram effect
Don't see it if you don't like old musicals or you need a story line to enjoy the music.
See it if you are a fan of Oscars music. This is more of a tribute then a musical. The songs were decent, but nothing that blew me away.
Don't see it if you are not a fan of Oscars songs. They waste the technology of the hologram and back screens on boring visuals. I wouldn't really recommend
See it if you like classic show music. Interesting staging. Singing and dancing OK. See it if you like the music.
Don't see it if you don't like Oscar's Broadway music. Singing is a little too melodramatic. Oscar's soliloquies don't really resonate.
See it if you enjoy the music of Oscar Hammerstein, would like light background about some of his shows, don't mind a weak, slow-moving musical
Don't see it if you expect a great musical with many memorable show tunes & costume changes
See it if There is NO reason. The singers have no idea of the songs, their voices, while good are wrong for the selections. WAY overproduced
Don't see it if you like the lyrics of Oscar Hammerstein. This show will make you cringe. Bad arrangements More a bad cabaret act than a play
See it if You are a masochist. It is that bad. Excruciating. Poorly conceived, written, directed, designed, and performed. A pathetic vanity show.
Don't see it if you want to be entertained. It is hard to explain how totally wrong everything about this show is. Among the worst I have ever seen.
See it if You are a masochist but Azudi Onyejekwe is very talented if allowed express his talent and not constrained
Don't see it if You like Oscar H. It is not enough. Ms Taylor takes the oxygen out of the room. She needs a good director.
See it if You like Hammerstein's classics put to "jazzy" arrangements, you want to see an obvious passion project/cabaret given full staging.
Don't see it if Blasphemous arrangements, ridiculous & unnecessarily complicated set, over-acted/poorly acted, ego project by a cabaret singer.
See it if You want to hear a lot of well-sung R&H songs with only minimal connective tissue between them. Or if you're all about holograms.
Don't see it if You need the hologram in question to say something especially profound. Or you want a conventional play/musical. This is a revue.
See it if You respect the lyrical works of Hammerstein and want to learn why he believes “dreaming” is important to all. Unique use of hologram.
Don't see it if You want a production with many/varied musical voices, emotions, and energy. The two singers are just okay, but not truly entertaining.
Also Only attend if you get complimentary tickets.
See it if you like Hammerstein musicals as this is a good revue with creative visual effects and hologram of the man. Just wish there were more songs.
Don't see it if you want a storyline and not just a musical revue. Would have loved a bigger cast for variety of singing styles & costumes.Diction distracts

See it if you have never heard Hammerstein before; this might possibly introduce you. Holograms used might be of interest.

See it if You love the old show tunes and a bit of explanation about how they were composed.
Don't see it if You expect a “play” in any traditional sense.
See it if You want to see the female sing well but move awkwardly wearing a black knee brace beneath a white gown; the male sing poorly but move well
