    I hope they do come back next season, I was planning on taking my kids to see it this summer. Unfortunately I don't think giving them city tax money is possible since they don't pay any to the city.

    "Oklahoma" has been a wonderful production. We missed geting out to see "Seven brides for Seven brothers". But I really believe that the original production of "Dust on her Petticoats" was the best performance. We used to live on 41st Street when the show let out there was no getting out because of the heavy traffic.

    I think they really need to change the venues. Kick out other shows besides Oklahoma! It is a good place to help those who are just starting out in drama/musicals.. We should be a hot spot for generating stars!
