See it if Arthur Darvill poured beer all over me, how could I not love this!!!!

Don't see it if It’s not what you expect from Oklahoma!, but I’d argue it’s better this way.

Intense, Funny, Great singing, Clever

See it if You're a fan of the musical but find the original dated. This reinvention has a great ensemble with some brilliant acting and intense scenes

Don't see it if You would prefer a traditional production of the musical - this version definitely pulls the show apart and builds it back up differently.

Wonderful musician ensemble, Feisty characters, Frontier ambience, Reworked, Musical classic

See it if Cowboys, agricultural workers, farmers, song & humour & excellent Rodgers & Hammerstein tunes make for an exciting blend! Fabulous cast!

Don't see it if re worked/mixed/imagined shows isn’t your preferred choice Theatre.

The London Evening Standard
February 28th, 2023

“Though the music is as gorgeous as ever, this version strips away many of the folksy, hokey accretions the show has acquired over the years and finds something much darker and more powerful.”

"The antithesis of the National’s much-loved revival a generation ago, this staging is cooler, darker, and feels completely new-minted"

“Some will praise it as an audaciously grungy reinvention; others will call it sacrilege. Watching it a second time, I still find myself marvelling at some of the innovations, wincing at others.”

"Approaching the text with uncompromising clarity, director Fish intentionally excises much of the lightness from the show, excavating unspoken themes of sexual violence and criminal complicity along the way."

“...what is notable is that, for all the unconventionality of this version, the exquisite craftsmanship of Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II's original creation shines through.”

Time Out London
February 28th, 2023

“It turns out that when people say ‘Sexy Oklahoma!’, they really mean it. Not because this production’s full of rippling biceps or heaving bosoms – or even actual sex – but because it’s an edgy, rock ‘n’ roll depiction of a community whose only way to cut loose is by having sex or firing a gun.”
