Lionel Bart's Oliver!

May 3 - 14, 2023

With its last Broadway production in 1984, it's fair to say that Lionel Bart's Oliver! is overdue a revival. Thanks to Encores! and in special arrangement with UK theatre impresario Cameron Mackintosh, New York City Center will delight audiences with this brand new staging of the musical theatre classic, directed by Lear DeBessonet. Based on Charles Dickens' 1838 novel, Oliver! transports us back to Victorian London, where one young boy is trying to find friends, find a family and navigate his way through life in a city filled with pickpockets, gangsters, and danger.

Having performed for more than two million people in the United States, Europe, and South America, they have brought the same recognition to their dancer as Alvin Ailey has done for black dancers.
