Freely adapted from Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens

Nothing is as thrilling on the stage as a well-crafted tale, and Oliver! is just such a show. Based on the Dickens novel, it engages with its pathos and drama, while delighting everyone with the musical numbers "Food, Glorious Food," "I'd Do Anything," "Where is Love?," "Consider Yourself," "As Long As He Needs Me," and "Who Will Buy." Dickens' characters are brought to life-perhaps larger than life-with all their facets glowing in this production.

Elizabeth & The Catapult to release 'Keepsake' on Oct 20
by Stephanie Wild - Jul 20, 2017

For Elizabeth Ziman, who performs as Elizabeth and The Catapult, Keepsake is her most personal and cohesive record yet. It's about nostalgia and transformation, a distillation of her experience with memories over time shaping her perspective on reality. This is none more evident than in album opener 'We Can Pretend', a track based on her childhood diary entries and a hyperbolic portrayal of her experiences growing up in the West Village with her friends in the 90s.

BWW Review: DESSERT, Southwark Playhouse
by Alistair Wilkinson - Jul 19, 2017

Glorious furniture decorates the stage, with 15th-century Venetian paintings hanging from the walls. A butler pours expensive wine and the four dinner guests congratulate him on cooking delicious food. Dessert is on its way, as is a night the five of them will never forget. Oliver Cotton's new play is a blend of unexpected twists and dark humour, directed by the seasoned Trevor Nunn, but drama is ultimately sacrificed for didactic discussion of capitalism. (more...)

BWW Review: NEWSIES Is Exceptionally Entertaining, Bursting With Raw Energy!
by Robert Encila - Jul 18, 2017

Disney's Newsies is a Tony Award-winning musical derived from the motion picture of the same title. Produced for the first time in Manila, it has commanded the day's headlines and kept a viewing public abuzz with excitement. We can assume Disney's ubiquitous brand had preceded its product, given the film's relative failure to draw critical and commercial acclaim in the early '90s. Considering its cult following after the release of the home video, it makes sense to bring musical theater back to its logical milieu where live performance of a Broadway musical is unparalleled. This production has been every bit as advertised: it's electric, witty, and poignant. (more...)
