About Encores! Lionel Bart's Oliver!

Nominated for 10 Tony Awards and winner of six Academy Awards for the iconic Carol Reed film adaptation, Lionel Bart’s adaptation of Charles Dickens’ Oliver Twist has been a household name since its premiere in 1960. Yet Oliver! hasn’t been seen on a New York City stage since its Broadway revival nearly 40 years ago.

The story of a child who dares to trust in others, search for love, and ask for more in London’s seedy underworld, Bart’s coming-of-age classic finds new life in this landmark Encores! revival featuring Lilli Cooper (Nancy), Raúl Esparza (Fagin), Julian Lerner (The Artful Dodger), Tam Mutu (Bill Sikes), Brad Oscar (Mr. Bumble), Benjamin Pajak (Oliver), Thom Sesma (Mr. Sowerberry), Michael Siberry (Mr. Brownlow), and Mary Testa (Widow Corney).

Entertaining, Riveting, Great acting, Great singing, Great staging

See it if A well-done prod on an exciting set. The performers were all excellent. The music&voices were beautiful. The costuming was clever;*

Don’t see it if This classic story can b told w/out sexually explicit behavior,esp bcs much of the target audience is kids&youth. Not x children under 8y o.

Unfinished ending, Memorable songs, Terrible book, Great performances

See it if you want to delight in the songs, the great voices (Lilli Cooper, Raul Esparza, Mary Testa, newcomers Dodger and Oliver), athletic choreogy.

Don’t see it if you want a gd book. Violent, dark, nasty. Primary targets: women/kids. Perfect Encores show (meaning problematic), beautifully executed.

Great music, Great singing, Delightful

See it if you enjoy minimally staged shows with fantastic music - full orchestra and great cast.

Don’t see it if The book, particularly the finale, is a bit of a mess.
