We always enjoy seeing a performance at Goodspeed Opera House. We recently saw Oklahoma. It was a wonderful production. The cast, choreography, costumes and sets were wonderful. The musical score was memorable too. I highly recommend seeing this summer production.

Show was very good. The young woman that played Milly is great. What "pipes". Have seen this show before, Goodspeed did it the best.
