Follow young orphan Oliver from a dreary workhouse to the streets of Victorian London, where he unwittingly falls in with a gang of pickpockets, in Oliver! Based on Charles Dickens' beloved novel Oliver Twist, this boisterous musical features memorable songs like "Food, Glorious Food," "Consider Yourself," "Where Is Love?" and "As Long as He Needs Me," and timeless themes, including the search for love, the triumph of right over wrong and the hope for a better world. Oliver! premiered in London's West End in 1960, scored three Tony Awards for its Broadway debut in 1963 and was made into a six-time Oscar-winning musical film in 1968. This musical theater classic might leave you saying, "Please, sir, I want some more." Learn More

I thought the play was overwritten and the direction not very good. Except for the character of Beth, the DV victim, and her mother, the roles were not nuanced, too "one note", without much range of emotion. I found myself irritated and, by the second intermission, not very interested in what happened to the characters.
