Adapted from the novel Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens. Oliver Twist quickly learns the grim realities of life for a young boy on his own as he navigates the slums, thieves' kitchens, and night-shelters of Dickens' London. Lighter in mood than the original story, Lionel Bart's musical captures perfectly the larger-than-life characters of the novel, as it embodies Dickens' "fiery indignation against wrong, his glowing faith in humanity, and his firm belief in the certain triumph, in the end, of right over wrong." Directed by Susan Kosoff. Musical direction by Jon Goldberg. Choreography by Laurel Conrad. Scenic design by Anthony Hancock. Lighting design by Franklin Meissner, Jr. Costume Design by Charles G. Baldwin. Book, music, and lyrics by Lionel Bart.
