Just opened last night at Millburn, NJ's Paper Mill Playhouse is Oliver! This adorable show is great for the whole family, and both my son and I loved it. Some of our favorites from the evening were Betsy Morgan, who plays Nancy (thief and more). Nancy loves the main villain of the story, but wants more out of life then she has a chance to receive. She takes up for Oliver, and pays for it in the end. Betsy Morgan has an amazing voice, and every single time she took the stage we were excited to hear her. Her voice and performance were moving, and she was a pleasure to watch. My son (age 6) also loved her, and wanted to know when she will "make a CD". My son also was excited to see all the children on stage, led by Tyler Moran, who is in 6th grade and plays Oliver Twist. The children were lively, talented, and great multi-taskers, singing and dancing as different parts and characters. We had a great time at this performance, and recommend you taking your whole family to the first show that fits into your schedule.
