Based on Dickens' beloved character from the novel Oliver Twist, this boisterous musical follows young orphan Oliver from the dreary surroundings of a workhouse to the streets of Victorian London, where he unwittingly falls in with a gang of pickpockets. Featuring memorable songs like "Food, Glorious Food," "Consider Yourself," "Where Is Love?" and "As Long as He Needs Me," the endearing tale tackles relatable themes: the search for love, the triumph of right over wrong, the hope for a better world, and the belief that life is worth living. Oliver! premiered in London's West End in 1960, debuted on Broadway in 1963, and was made into a musical film in 1968. Learn More
More Information About Lhotakova & Soukup Company Present Beethoven Live
<p> Czech co-founders of the LaS Company, choreographer Kristina Lhotáková and director/sound designer Ladislav Soukup, create a unique documentary dance-theatre working with non-dancers, "real people," as inspiration. </p> <p> For the New York segment of The Name of the Game, a piece that explores the irrevocability of nature, they have assembled a corps of four young people, aged fifteen to twenty-five, who were cast in NYC and who then traveled to Prague to work with the LaS company. The youthful cast, growing up, changing every day, and literally leaping into their lives, embodies the unstoppable forward mechanism of nature, progress, and moments that will never come back. Yet the project seeks to reinvent the "unrepeatable" with aesthetic tools of rhythm, pictures, and movement. </p> <p>In October, 2005 Lhotáková and Soukup opened "The Name of the Game - Queretaro" at the Encuentro del Cuerpo Festival in Mexico, with Mexican performers. Another version of "The Name of the Game" is currently being worked on in Prague. These three variations will be presented as a mini-festival in Prague in late 2007 at the Archa theatre. </p>
