Quotes

[first lines]
Curly: [singing] There's a bright golden haze on the meadow, / There's a bright golden haze on the meadow. / The corn is as high as a elephant's eye, / And it looks like it's climbin' clear up to the sky. / Oh, what a beautiful mornin', / Oh, what a beautiful day! / I got a beautiful feelin' / Everything's goin' my way.

And I thought I might find filmed musical theatre boring...
21 October 2002 | by jnvalenteSee all my reviews

Re: my one line summary - I was wrong, so very wrong! Minor warning: it still hasn't lost the feel of a filmed stage musical, but the good news is that this fact won't probably impair your enjoyment of this wonderful revival of 'Oklahoma!' I find the cast much to blame. Maureen Lipman is sublime, the best Aunt Eller ever! Hugh Jackman is cheeky enough and masculine enough as Curly, and in astounding revelation to my humble self proves he can sing, truly and powerfully sing. Josefina Gabrielle is a sweet yet wilful Laurey and I just love what Shuler Hensley does with Jud and Peter Polycarpou as Ali Hakim is simply wonderful. Considering that this belongs to the stage and all I still think it deserves a 10 out of 10. Certainly much better than the so-called classic film adaptation. Those films put me off Rodgers & Hammerstein with all their big budget distractions and sometimes poor acting(with singers dubbing the actors or not)to tarnish the beauty of much of their work. This? This is beautiful and does the words&lyrics justice.
