W e are at a workhouse in 19th-century England. A giant, metal cargo crate sits on a stage, surrounded by shallow graves and tiny, white crosses. Grubby workers, dressed in 50 shades of black, are dancing in a mechanical daze. From the centre of this melancholy dance emerges a little boy, Oliver. The Artful Dodger a surprisingly sympathetic Danny-Boy Hatchard and his gang of pickpockets wear spray-painted jackets and cheeky grins. They whizz about on the stage in rollerskate trainers, on hoverboards and scooters, and prompt yelps of admiration from my year-old theatre companion, Qeiva. Director Caroline Byrne is not afraid of frightening her young audience.
The English theater's native musical successes — those it has — do not as a rule travel well, or at all. They remain fogbound, or an ocean apart. Broadway is universally and justifiably acknowledged for the development of musical theater as a popular art form. No one does it better. A major production has not been seen since the national touring company played on Broadway for two months in , less. The attitude that youngsters, once trained to be criminals, are destined to remain that way did not disappear with the workhouses of the Victorian age. But it is not the musical's intention to belabor the novel's concerns for the underprivileged masses.
