Oliver! sure to be fun for the whole family
By Andrew Moore
Based on Charles Dickens’ classic novel Oliver Twist, Lionel Bart’s musical masterpiece vividly brings to life the timeless characters in this beloved story of the boy who asked for more. Join Nancy, The Artful Dodger, Fagin, and many more as Oliver navigates the treacherous streets of London in his search for a home and a family. Featuring outstanding songs, including “Food, Glorious Food,” “Consider Yourself,” “As Long As He Needs Me,” and “Where is Love?,” the beautiful score will stir and captivate audiences of all ages. Oliver! is “a glorious reminder of just how life-enhancing a musical can be.” –Daily Telegraph.
