Ohhhh, Nick Hytner's Carousel was a life altering experience.I loved every minute of it (and I've seen my share of community theatre productions)! From what I have heard and read Trevor Nunn has done the same for Oklahoma with Susan Stroman's choreography! Yahoo! <P>D

This production of Oklahoma is the best musical production I have ever seen.<P>There is so much going on, so much attention to detail that you are held entranced all the way through. Stroman's choreography is superb - exhilirating.<P>Do go and see it.

DavidH, I feel the exact same way about CAROUSEL. <P>I've seen original productions of SWEENEY TODD, EVITA, DREAMGIRLS, NINE and more, but CAROUSEL at Lincoln Center was the best!<P>Can't wait for OKLAHOMA.

Unusually, it is neither a Highly Important Deconstruction by a Wunderkind Director (as with the current "Cabaret," reconceived by Sam Mendes) nor an affable reimagining (as with the recently departed "Annie Get Your Gun").<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><A HREF="http://www.nytimes.com/2002/02/24/arts/theater/24MORD.html" TARGET=_blank><B>Click for More</B></A><P>

<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>The Briton Who Revived 'Oklahoma!'<P>BENEDICT NIGHTINGALE, NY Times<P>LONDON — A less tenacious, obstinate or driven director might have given up the battle, but Trevor Nunn was always determined to give New York theatergoers a chance to see the makeover of Rodgers and Hammerstein's "Oklahoma!," which he staged at the National Theater here in 1998. And why not? The production, praised by almost every reviewer for its freshness, moved to the West End, drew the crowds and, Mr. Nunn would like to think, still has something fundamental to say about the values and virtues of America.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><a href=http://www.nytimes.com/2002/03/17/arts/theater/17NIGH.html target=_blank>More</a>

<B>'Oklahoma!' Yeeow! Ayipioeeay!</B><BR>London Staging Corrals An American Classic <BR>By Nelson Pressley in The Washington Post <P><BR>NEW YORK -- After a four-year drumbeat that has fueled expectations and a $12 million advance sale, here at last is Trevor Nunn's 1998 London staging of "Oklahoma!," ambling onto Broadway with the gait of a gentleman cowboy. The show, which opened last night at the Gershwin Theatre, is easily the most anticipated musical of the season, and it's a stately production of a grand old classic. <P>Frontier energy? You'll find plenty in Susan Stroman's choreography, which encompasses everything from cute two-steps to the gorgeous mayhem of an all-out brawl. The melodramatic story about a lovely, independent-minded farm gal named Laurey and her two suitors -- strapping, charming Curly and that hulking psychopathic farmhand nesting in the smokehouse, Jud Fry -- is told with a minimum of corn. The acting is direct and effective from beginning to end.<P><A HREF="http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A377-2002Mar21.html" TARGET=_blank><B>click for more</B></A>

In their freshly reconceived version of that most classic of American musicals, "Oklahoma!," which opened last night at the Gershwin Theater, the director Trevor Nunn and the choreographer Susan Stroman find rushing erotic currents in the frontier spirit. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><A HREF="http://www.nytimes.com/2002/03/22/arts/theater/22OKLA.html" TARGET=_blank><B>Click for More</B></A><BR>

When the recalcitrant curtain at last clears the set's arch, Wilson puts extra emphasis on the lyrics of "Oh, What a Beautiful Morning," especially "Everything's Going My Way."<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><a href=http://www.ctnow.com/entertainment/stage/hc-oklahomarev.artmar22.story?coll=hc%2Dheadlines%2Dtheaterreviews target=_blank>More</a>
