Best Musical of the Year, Juliet Wittman, Westword

 "Crisp, soulful theater using every inch of the Stage Theatre’s thrust setting with its sepia-toned color palette and lush sky. It’s a perfectly pitched new take on the complicated American Dream, bringing resonance and conscience to a classic."– John Wenzel, The Denver Post

 "Oh, what a beautiful production of Oklahoma! This production had me from the opening moment. No overture: just a figure of a cowboy, the weathered wood of the sparcely furnished set and clouds scudding across the clear blue of an Oklahoma sky."– Juliet Wittman, Westword

 "The scenic design, by Wilson Chin, has a vibrant backdrop of an ever-changing Oklahoma sky with luscious clouds. It’s beautiful to watch."– Chris Arneson, Broadway World

"The thrust stage is set with sepia-toned colors– an old Claremore newspaper as the backdrop and massive rustic beams as the frame. Upon closer inspection, the beams are accented with thick, corroded chains– and when taken in all together; it isn’t a stretch to think of other chains, turned orange by salt from ocean water, wrapped around ship beams that carried the souls of millions of enslaved African brought to the Americas generations ago."– Erica Newton, Onstage
