I say if you have ANY desire to see it. Do so. It's not for everyone but I found it to be brilliant. Wasn't crazy about the ending change but that didn't ruin it for me. And that music live is just wonderful. I am thinking of seeing it again before it closes.

Just give the world Love.

Just to prove how divisive this show is, my friends and I found it among the worst nights of theater we ever endured on Broadway. Please understand that folks feel PASSIONATELY about this production, both pro and con. 

And no, virtually no show is worth the cost of theater tickets PLUS the plane flights and hotel costs for one lone show. No show is.

They don't do the lotto loser code anymore. It'll give you a link to check availability. I entered lotto two weeks ago to have as back up show (saw it on my last trip and loved it enough to want to try again before it closes) but when I checked availability a few hours later after I got out of my matinee were no discount seats available. So I recc'd just entering and checking immediately once results are in. Email I got:

"Unfortunately, you did not win the tickets for:
 

Oklahoma! on Saturday, November 16, 2019 at 8:00 PM. If you're still interested in attending, there's a strictly limited number of $59.50 tickets available to this performance of Oklahoma!

 

Thanks again for entering! Please check back for more chances to win affordable tickets."

Yes! If you have the money it is so worth it. I was never a huge fan of OK but I loved this production so much. It’s really worth seeing this cast at Circle in the Square. It’s really fantastic.

It may worth be seeing "this cast" but unfortunately, most of "this cast" is regularly skipping performances. Which, oddly, many around her think is "Oklahoma, O.K.!"

Loved it! But honestly have no other outlets to OK so some parts were confusing.
