Oklahoma! receiving rave reviews across the country

Here is a selection of quotes from reviews received for Oklahoma! from around the UK and Ireland:

‘A Musical theatre warhorse brings fresh delight in a conventional but smashing new production
The Stage

 ‘With its high-stepping energy and abundant appeal, this sun-soaked Oklahoma! is much more than OK’
The Times

 ‘Hay bales of fun’
 The Daily Mail

 ‘You might wonder why anyone would want to revive a 70-year-old musical that’s had a number of runs over the past few years, with varying degrees of success. And then you get this triumphant production to silence any doubts’
What’s On Stage

‘I defy anyone, no matter how weighed down by the winter blues, to see Rachel Kavanaugh’s touring revival of Oklahoma! and not emerge with a great big smile plastered over their face.
Life changing.’
The Telegraph

 A good story, wonderful music and superb choreography delivered by a talented cast – what more could you ask for?’
The Public Reviews
 

‘A Toe Tapping  5/5’
What’s Good To Do 

‘Big, bold, bright and brilliant, Rachel Kavanaugh’s revival of Oklahoma! is a feel-good musical that is sure to put a smile on your face. Highly recommended!’
The Public Reviews 

‘The Pulitzer Prize-winning musical Oklahoma! is not to be missed’
Manchester Evening News 

‘Timeless and matchless. Musicals don’t come better than this’
Eastbourne Herald
 

‘No messing about here, I’m going in all guns blazing; this new production of the Rodgers and Hammerstein blockbuster, Oklahoma!, is nigh on the best musical theatre you will see this year. The cast is superb, a truly slick and professional ensemble, and you feel right from the start that you are in for something special’
ON: Yorkshire Magazine 

 ‘Choreographer Drew McOnie’s end of Act One Dream Ballet is worth the ticket price alone’
The Herald 
 

‘About 40 minutes into this fine touring production of Oklahoma!, co-produced by Music & Lyrics with the Royal and Derngate, Northampton, I paused to count the world-famous and gloriously melodic songs we had already heard, in the first quarter of this mighty Rodgers and Hammerstein musical, first seen in 1943′.

From Oh What A Beautiful Mornin’ to Many A New Day, there were eight of them. That’s eight times as many beautiful, memorable songs as you’ll find in the whole length of Les Miserables or Miss Saigon, before the show is even halfway to the interval.’
The Scotsman

‘Quite why it is not coming to the West End is a mystery worthy of Sherlock Holmes’
