I have always been entranced by the state of Oklahoma,sort of fascinated in fact…but not because I ever visited but because of the film and the musical, I felt acquainted with the state. The mere mention of the state sets off a chorus of singers and dancers in my mind..singing “Oklahoma.. O-K-L-A-H-O-M-A…OK.
So knowing that I would be attending the opening night of a production of Oklahoma at the Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival made my weekend..a chance to hear the highly infectious tunes of Rodgers and Hammerstein. And it was a chance to visit Oklahoma, if only in my mind..but what a trip! If I was blindfolded and brought to the theater I would have thought that I was in the center of Broadway, but I was in Center Valley, Pa.
Cast and crew were in fine form befitting the score so eloquently composed by the uber talented Rodgers-Hammerstein team. And did I mention the cast was so utterly talented with voices that should someday grace the stages of a Broadway theater..and oh yes the performance is dedicated to the people of Okalahoma..
