I'm sitting here listening to the Lyric Opera of Chicago live broadcast of their premiere of Oklahoma! Curly and Laurie are just now singing, "People Will Say We're in Love." Obviously I have now way of telling the staging, scenery and costumes, but the audio production is wonderful, far better than I expected. (I know the Lyric Opera is great, I just didn't know how well Oklahoma! would translate to opera voices.)
The actor playing Curly is a touch thin during his acting scenes, pressing a bit too hard, though he comes across with a pleasant, ingenuous sensibility. But his singing -- and everyone's -- has been just absolutely wonderful. There's still plenty of time to catch the rest of the first act and Act Two. It's 6:40 PM in Los Angeles as I write this.
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
