Quotes & Highlights
“A great novel has been transformed into truly stunning theatre.” —The Daily Telegraph
This adaptation of Oliver Twist is an American premiere.
Based on the novel by Charles Dickens
Adapted and directed by Neil Bartlett
Inspired by the vivid world of the Victorian music hall, Neil Bartlett’s staging of Oliver Twist uses the original language of Dickens’ novel to dramatize one of the most deeply felt stories about childhood ever written. A cast of unforgettable characters brings the underworld of 19th-century London back to thrilling life—a city teeming with images of danger and fear—all seen through the eyes of an astonished child. Comic and tragic, musical and dramatic, Neil’s adaptation of Oliver Twist was a runaway success in London.
