Whatsonstage reports that the West End's OLIVER! revival has set a closing date of 8 January, 2011. The production opened on 14 January 2009 with the West End's largest advance ever: £15 million. A spokesperson for the show is reported as saying: 'For a show as enormous as OLIVER!, a two-year run at Drury Lane is just fantastic, so we are going to have a sensational six-month send-off.' That send-off includes a special engagement on 30 June 2010, in which Ron Moody will return to the role of 'Fagin' for a special one-night-only 50th anniversary performance. He began performances in the same role at London's New Theatre on 30 June, 1960.
