How sad to read this review. My first exposure to OKLAHOMA was a City Center production with a young exuberant cast including Susan Watson, John Davidson, and Karen Morrow. But the most enjoyable production of the show for me was the 1979 Broadway revival production directed by William Hammerstein. It just worked so well and seemed so fresh for a decades-old show I'm all for new takes on a classic musical but I see no reason for seeing what sounds like a major directional blunder on so many levels. As for the seven-piece orchestras, I'm still perplexed as to how the theatre-going public has been fine with the reduction of musicians in recent years. And the thought of Laurey dancing to a heavy metal guitar is more than I can bear. Guess I 'll stick my memories I guess.
