“Thrilling, audacious, and delightful. This has always been a very American story but has never felt so much of one until now.”
-The New York Times
“Without sacrificing the show’s humor or the beauty of its music, Fish and his company have created a charged, scary production, a story about the aggressions and ambiguities entwined deep in the root system of America.”
-New York Magazine
“Sexy, suspenseful and with a fresh, exuberant sound, this is an Oklahoma! to hoot and cheer and stomp your boots at!”
