Is fugging brilliant. Go and see.
if for nothing else Rowan Atkinson as Fagin. How long is it running for?
Atkinson is good, if a little hammy. His voice migrates between east end villan, mr bean and a jewish stereotype.
Unfortunately every time he so much as moves the audiences goes into spasms - seriously, he nearly got a standing ovation for his first appearance on stage
watched Polanskis version over christmas and while good it just ain't the same without the songs.
I might save it for something to do next time my parents come to visit.
For this reason I really don't think I could ever sit through it.
ain't no Charlie Bates
My pivotal role of Charlie Bates was worthy of a ten minute standing ovation (I think the audience didn't want to upset any of the other children).
See this by all means but just remember what you have missed.
The heart and the soul, the meat and potatoes, my everything.
Superficially he was the Artful Dodger's right hand man but I'm sure we all know he was so much more.
I had a breakdown after putting my all into the part.
The sets are unreal
I'm still shajken by how crap Phantom of the opera was. It went on for 7 weeks.
Does she overact horribly in the actual production on did they make her ok?
I went to see the old production of Oliver with my granny. It was better than Phantom, not as good as Cats.
