Davis Gaines (The Phantom of the Opera) takes on the famed role of Fagin in this Musical Theatre West production of the long-time fave Oliver! at the Carpenter Performing Arts Center in Long Beach. Lionel Bart brought Charles Dickens' unforgettable characters to vivid new life with this lively, heel-kicking classic about an innocent orphan thrown into the dark world of double-dealing thieves and con men of 19th-century London. Overflowing with jubilant songs like "You've Got to Pick a Pocket or Two," "Consider Yourself," "I'd Do Anything" and "Food, Glorious Food," this Tony and Olivier Award-winning show is one of the few musicals to also win an Academy Award for Best Picture.
