One thought on “Oliver! The Musical Reviews”

  1. Reviewing the situation:
    Reading the previous review .it seems it has all been said. My husband and I went to see Oliver on Thursday, it was brilliant! Rowan Atkinson put his own “twist” on Fagin and he was excellent. The show was well cast and the choreography was very good. I was also impressed with the set designs and all the creative thought and imagination that had been lavished on the show.
    I loved the vocal arrangements of the songs and the sound balance between solo singers and the orchestra.
    If you love Lional Bart’s work, then I thoroughly recommend you visit The Theatre Royal, Drury Lane for a wonderful evening of entertainment.
