Oliver

March 7, 2013

I enjoyed an afternoon with Ben for his fourteenth birthday at the Birmingham Hippodrome to see the current national tour of Lionel Bart’s “Oliver”. I have previously seen wonderful productions in London with Russ Abbot playing Fagin at the Palladium and Rowan Atkinson at the Theatre Royal. This touring production has top quality sets, rich orchestral backing with an unusually large supporting cast. Neil Morrissey made a good Fagin but it was Samantha Barks who got my attention as Nancy with “As long as he needs me”.
