Wellll I can't take it away from them, if you're looking for a loud, colorful musical with lots of good songs and imaginative staging then this is it. Oliver! will always be to some extent a highly commercial vehicle since its American debut in...continued

Excellent casting, thrilling production numbers, very fast paced. Great sight lines everywhere. Goldstar seat was 7th row dead center - doesn't get better than that!

I thought the songs were expertly delivered and the choreography of the young children was done very well. My only disappointment was the lack of passion in the overall show. I didn't feel the desolation of the orphans or of Marion.
