Yes, those are the original lyrics. It's an encore of the song with lyrics by Hammerstein.

Wow at first glance I thought that was St. Ann's. I sat in the obstructed view section at St. Ann's and the view was similar (I was closer to the band.) Also, I agree that the band looks closer to the actors.At St. Ann's everyone got free chili! That was fun.I can't seem to see the 2 doors at the wall there.
In St. Ann's during the dream ballet scene with the falling boots I recall both men were behind the two doors on the wall (opposite from the band.)
Anyway, for those seeing this show this evening for the first preview, have a great time!

Anxiously waiting to reports is getting me all tense.....
What the hell was that!??!!?!I don't know what combination of drugs you have to be on to stage what appeared tonight but it is the WORST most torturous thing i have evrr sat through. EVER! Tje actor playing Will is delightful and the only good in this production. Maybe you need to be high out of your mind to watch it. And the "dream ballet" what a freakin joke.I would reccomend this to no one. Not even my worst enemy.OKLAHOMA! O NO!
O_O Well then, wasn't expecting that. Can I ask what it was that was so bad about?Really on the fence on seeing this so very interested in what mad you hate it so much.
