I'm extremely fond of Oklahoma, particularly Trevor Nunn's production at the NT, and while Doyle is very talented, this doesn't seem to beckon me from London to invest in a day trip the way that Music Man did.

And Trevor Nunn doing Cyrano de Bergerac with Joseph Fiennes... WHY did the b*stards have to pull out the big guns name-wise after I left?! Good old CFT... I'll always love the mothership.

Oooh, I love Oklahoma!. Wasn't a fan of Michael Xavier's until recently, but I loved him in Spamalot and would be interested to see him in this. Any news on who's playing Will Parker or Aunt Eller?

When they did Rodgers & Hammerstein for Friday Night is Music Night there a couple of years ago, Norman Bowman was just fantastic doing the Oklahoma stuff. I bloody love that man.

Anything that was a bit more of a challenge, something that's a 'Lost Musical' like Dear World or something like that.
This just seems very easy.

Im shocked anyone could think anything in THe Wedding Singer was anything near fantastic, least of all her. I genuinly thought it was the worst touring show ive ever seen.

I'm so there with SADM2- something challenging, something 'lost', something that isn't 'Oklahoma!' again! That will be the 3rd major production in 30 years.

Yeah - and I've seen the other two.

I'd love to see Ragtime or another unappreciated masterpiece, or a reappraisal of something obscure - but we're talking Chichester here. When I made my first expedition there last year I thought the audience looked very twin-set and pearls (and that was just the men).

Well, yes we are talking Chichester here so the blue rinse brigade will sell this out for sure.

What is Britain's obsession with OKLAHOMA! ? There seems to be a revival every 18 months there. If they want a rarely performed R&H why not STATE FAIR?
