Nothing works on the stage like a well-crafted tale, and OLIVER! is just such a show. Based on the Dickens novel, you’ll be engaged with its pathos and drama, while being delighted with its outstanding musical numbers– Food, Glorious Food, I’d Do Anything, Where is Love?, Consider Yourself, As Long As He Needs Me and many more. Dickens’ characters are brought to life-perhaps larger than life-with all their facets glowing in this production.
