My first experience with live theater and "Oklahoma" was when I was in the 5th or 6th grade? Then, I saw the movie with Gordon MacRae and Shirley Jones. My Mom's family was from Oklahoma and I visited there many times growing up...where the wind comes sweepin' down the plain! I love Oklahoma!
I have seen this movie a hundred times, and I still cry my eyes out when she's at his funeral..."where are his glasses? get his glasses, he can't see without his glasses!!!" Rips my heart apart every time.
