Signature Productions Quality Family Entertainment is a local production company that does open calls to the community for their actors for the shows they produce. This time they decided to produce LIONEL BART'S OLIVER! OLIVER! is one of the cannon from early Broadway first produced in the West End opening in 1960 and continuing to Broadway in 1962. It is not a Disneyesque show. It does have a somber feel to it, with some lighthearted moments.

Putting another arrow in my own quiver, I am jumping from my usual duties recapping GOTHAM (season is over anyway) and serving as tonight's shot for shot commentator for ARROW as its third season comes to a close. I do watch ARROW and I am a fan so I am not jumping in totally cold. I do know that main man Oliver Queen – aka the Arrow – took the bait offered by the shady league all so he could work from the inside. Some of his allies thought he really turned on them so there are suspicions galore.

Theater Latte Da and Hennepin Theatre Trust have formed a beautiful partnership called 'Broadway Re-Imagined,' in which they combine the resources of the Trust with the creativity and innovation of Latte Da to produce a Broadway-sized musical with all local talent and that special Latte Da twist. After the powerful rock musical Aida and the brilliant Ivey Award-winning Cabaret, they return this year with Oliver!, the 1960 musical based on Charles Dickens' novel Oliver Twist. But don't let all those adorable moppets dancing around the stage and singing upbeat tunes fool you. Oliver! is not a light and fluffy happy musical, well, not solely anyway. It's also a dark and somber look at such serious issues as child abuse and neglect, the desperation of poverty, and violence. But fortunately, after all the death and darkness, the curtain call ends with a reprise of a happy number, so we can all leave the theater with that happy musical feeling. But perhaps we also leave with a deeper thought about the relevance and seriousness of what we just saw, wrapped up in a gorgeous musical theater package, to ponder further at a later date.
