Charles Dickens’s England was not an easy place to be alone. Oliver, a young boy with no apparent family, adapts quickly to a world rampant with poverty and hunger. Lionel Bart captures perfectly the boisterous, comic, and tragic characters of "Oliver Twist", infusing this classic tale with a feast of memorable songs. Lighter in mood than the original novel, the musical’s themes remain the same: the search for love, the triumph of right over wrong, and the hope for a better world.
