In May 2008 Jodie Prenger, an unknown from Blackpool in Lancashire (NW England), won the coveted role of Nancy and her chance to perform in a West End musical. Oliver! is staged in the beautiful Theatre Royal Drury Lane, although the theatre is actually in Catherine Street by Covent Garden, and this is where BF and I went last night. It was magical, especially the young boys playing Oliver and the Artful Dodger. The show is a true ensemble piece, with no one lead character, as Nancy, Fagin, Bill Sykes and the boys are all essential parts of the story. See it if you can.
