How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
Having been a big fan of the movie Oliver for many years, I was a concerned that this show would not live up to the magic of the film. I am happy to report that this show was fantastic. The sets captured the gritty feel of old London. The cast was amazing. The leads were all spot on and were perfectly cast. Oliver, The Artful Dodger, Fagin, and Nancy were a pleasure to watch, and the group of kids sang beautifully as well. My husband was not familiar with the show and is not typically a fan of musicals. He enjoyed the show immensely.

Help others enjoy a great night out

Info
This comment is really for the venue itself. Perhaps Drury Lane needs to remind their guests about proper theatre etiquette. I know that Goldstar members are well aware of the proper protocol! :-) A handful of people arrived late, talked, and crackled wrappers during the performance. This is the third show I have seen at DL where the patrons seemed to think they were watching from their living rooms.
