Nominated for 10 Tony Awards and winner of six Academy Awards for the iconic Carol Reed film adaptation, Lionel Bart’s adaptation of Charles Dickens’ Oliver Twist has been a household name since its premiere in 1960. Yet Oliver! hasn’t been seen on a New York City stage since its Broadway revival nearly 40 years ago. The story of a child who dares to trust in others, search for love, and ask for more in London’s seedy underworld, Bart’s coming-of-age classic finds new life in this landmark Encores! revival that invites you to “consider yourself one of us!”

Lionel Bart’s Oliver! is part of the 2023 Encores! season, our beloved, Tony-honored series of musical theater revivals helmed by Artistic Director Lear deBessonet, Producing Creative Director Clint Ramos, and Music Director Mary-Mitchell Campbell.

Check out the rest of the season: Dear World (Mar 15 – 19) and The Light in the Piazza (Jun 21 – 25).
