Sincerely, Oscar is a meandering mindbender where two's company, three's a crowd, and thirty songs take us on jazzed-up journey through Show Boat, Oklahoma!, Carousel, State Fair, Allegro, South Pacific, The King and I, and The Sound of Music. Intriguing conceptually but lopsided musically, the clunky show presents an awkwardly-staged, amped-up glow-and-tell cabaret with a technological twist.
