Unfortunately, I don't have the musical or dance technique knowledge to properly discuss what I saw. However, when it comes to acting, I feel more comfortable.

Jordan Wynn's acting of the role was stunning (as well as her dancing). It was there in her eyes, her face, her arms, her gestures, her legs, the way she moved her body. She communicated to me, and I was moved by what I saw. My gut feeling is that she was allowed to put her own stamp on the dance. Just my opinion. It was a powerful performance.

Again we were sitting very close to the stage, and I got the sense that others around me were reacting strongly to her also. One added detail, boots did not fall to the stage from above like they did at Circle in the Square.

When I saw the Broadway Oklahoma! on 4/28/2019, I had moved from SR to the front row for Act 2. I intensely disliked the Dream Ballet as performed by Hamilton. I just didn't "get" it. It told me nothing.

In the Playbill CAST page, it reads DANCE CAPTAIN: JORDAN WYNN. When we entered the theater, the board stated that Jordan Wynn would be playing the role of Lead Dancer. However, there was no white slip in my Playbill. In the WHO'S WHO IN THE CAST section, Jordan Wynn's bio reads (Alternate Lead Dancer, Dance Captain).
