Written on: 15/03/2011 by smartlivigirl888 (1 review written)

Oliver was a very good play. It was charming, though Oliver's voice was a little high. I would reccomend to all my friends to see it. I liked all the singing plus five of my classmates were in it. There wasn't anything I didn't like about it. Recommeding it to all tickets are $10 at the door. Check out goshenschools.org for shows. You would like to know that it will be scary for some children… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/01/2011

Saw the final matinee performance Sat 8th Jan. This was an extremely poor performance by all. The sound was poor, Griff Rhys Jones was embarrasing as Fagin, Kerry Ellis was not as good as Jodie Prenger and Steven Hartley should take some singing & acting lessons, Having seen the show last year with Omid Djalilli & Jodie Prenger giving their all and a much better oliver & Artful Dodger, I feel cheated, the cast came across as if they couldn't wait for it to end....neither could I, what a rip… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/01/2011

I took my Brother to see this show for his Birthday 6th Jan 2011, I was really looking forward to it, as we have been fans of Oliver since kids.
The Arful dodger, was fantastic, singing,dancing and charactor, spot on and the staging was excellent. I was not overly impressed with any of the other actors singing, dancing abilities, and Bill Sykes was a bit boring, the whole show was a bit slow to begin with, but got better in the middle and the end. However what I was very disappointed with was… Read Full Review

nancy was great ,fagan not to good as was bill sykes but the scenery was fantastic that alone was worth going to see ,but whatever you do dont buy balcony tickets because they are nearly all restricted veiwing and you are not told this when booking you will also need a ventalator to get up the stairs ,there is no lifts so by the time i got to the top needless to say i wasnt in the greatest of moods but nancy and the artful dodger brightened me up the were brill… Read Full Review

“Oliver The Musical 15th December 2010. Spectacular...”

Written on: 20/12/2010

Oliver The Musical 15th December 2010. Spectacular scenery and the kids were very well drilled. What happened to 'It's a Fine Life' - far to fast and nearly missed it. I certainly couldn't make out the words. Bill Sykes will end up with a severely damaged voice if he carries on in that tuneless gravely way of singing/speaking and acting lessons wouldn't go amiss - the 'dramatic pauses' were excruciating. Kerry Ellis was just not on form and in fact gave the opinion that she, and in fact many… Read Full Review

“The staging is magnificent and deserves awards, but...”

Written on: 17/12/2010

The staging is magnificent and deserves awards, but although the storyline is somewhat 'darker' than the technicolour film I felt the pace was too fast and too superficial! Where could we see the relationship between Nacy & Bill, which makes Nancy's murder so horrific? Stephen Hartley had the necessary menace for Bill Sykes but fell short of true characterisation. Griff Rhys-Jones as Fagin fell very short of the mark - no menace, no charm - more of a panto character! For a ticket price of… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/11/2010

This show was such a disappointment. Kerry Ellis was superb but apart from her, everyone else seemed disinterested and uninvolved with the production. Griff Rhys Jones was weak, and not wily enough. Steven Hartley was not at all menacing and the lad who played Oliver was irritating. Oh, the lad who played the Artful Dodger was quite good. Travelled to London for this show only and thought I should have stayed home… Read Full Review

Written on: 31/10/2010

DURING THE FIRST 1/2 HOUR, I FELT A BIT DISAPPOINTED AS IT WAS SLOW TO GET WARMED UP AND i COULDN'T HEAR WHAT BUMBLE WAS SAYING. HOWEVER, AFTER THAT THE SHOW REALLY WARMED UP AND WAS THOROUGHLY ENJOYABLE. STEVE HARTLEY (BILL SYKES) WAS REALLY REALLY GOOD. YOU COULD HEAR A PIN DROP BECAUSE HIS ACTING WAS SO MENACING WITH SO MUCH TENSION. ARTFUL DODGER WAS BRILLIANT TOO. RUSS ABBOT AS FAGIN WAS OK BUT I THINK HE COULD HAVE PUT MORE OF HIS OWN MARK ON THE ROLE! NANCY WAS BRILL TOO… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/10/2010

Went for a day out in London for a family get together and had a great time. What a fantastic show. We were really excited to see the show and had splashed out on a box BB1. The view was excellent because there was nobody in front of us and it had plenty of room for our shopping bags and coats etc. My daughter (7 years) usually struggles to see but had no problems from the box. The children actors were briliant singers and dancers but best of all was Russ Abbot, he made a fabulous Fagin.

Written on: 26/10/2010

Oliver is one of the best musicals in history, there's no doubt about that, and Cameron Mackintosh's new production just makes it all the better! All these idiots who are saying that he added new things in, THAT'S NOT TRUE!!!! It strictly follows all of the other previous productions, and just because few of the songs weren't shown in the film, now they're new apparently? Mmmm.... the children were fantastic, and the set was just astonishing. Kerry Ellis was amazing, so were the rest of the… Read Full Review

We had a choice as to seeing Oliver or the Jersey Boys for a second time. We chose Oliver and what a mistake. There is no flow to the show and some of the performances are very week. Russ Abbott as Fagin is very good and the star of the show. Only fools and horses 'trigger' was awful. Think twice before you spend £65 for stalls tickets… Read Full Review
