This London stage production is a faithful revival, and was well cast. Everyone delivers in their roles, both in dialogue and song. Do Hugh Jackman and Josefine Gabrielle match up to Gordon MacRae and Shirley Jones? Not even close. Jackman is on key, but he lacks MacRae's full, rich voice. Gabrielle gives a spirited and emotional performance in both acting and singing, but she lacks that pure quality of voice that made Shirley Jones such a big star in musicals. To be fair, only a handful of women in the history of film and stage could match up to Shirley Jones.
Despite that, this is a fun alternative to see a different production of the show. We enjoyed it thoroughly.
I do have two quibbles with the quality of the media, and that held this product down to four stars in my book. First, the Blu ray picture quality doesn't measure up. It really is no better than a DVD quality picture. Second, the sound is often just barely out of sync. Early on I wondered if I needed to adjust my receiver, but then I noticed that sometimes the sound IS in sync. Sometimes it is out of sync at the start and middle of a sentence, and catches up to be in sync by the time the actor closes their mouth. LOL This made me wonder if they used film and audio from two different performances, or possibly picked up audio from a number of different performances to make a patchwork of best available.
Regardless, if you are a fan of this musical, you really won't be disappointed to sit through this presentation of it. The orchestra is dead on, and in chorus numbers you'd be hard pressed to tell this from the movie. Aunt Eller is spot on.Read more ›

This performance is from some years ago, as Hugh Jackman is young. It is a very good version of Oklahoma, staged in London, and the production quality of the Blu-Ray is good.Published on June 8, 2014 by docg
