Along the his journey he meets a colorful cast of characters, from the considerate Artful Dodger, the colorful and roguish leader of the pick-pocketers Fagin, the kindhearted Nancy, and the menacing Bill Sykes. This Tony and Olivier Award-winning show is one of the few musicals to win an Academy Award® for “Best Picture” and is widely hailed as a true theatrical masterpiece, with spirited, timeless songs like As Long as He Needs MeFood, Glorious FoodConsider YourselfWhere is Love; and Oliver!
