musical madness // Oliver!

 One of the most exciting things for me this Christmas was going to see the Oliver! Musical with my mom and sister. Not only is it one of my favorite musicals ever (ever since watching the movie version when I was little), but it was the first real on-stage musical I ever went to.

"Consider yourself well in
Consider yourself part of the furniture
There isn't a lot to spare
Who cares? What ever we've got we share!"

  It was brilliant. The cast was great; little Oliver himself was such a good singer. And one of the most exciting things for me was that Samantha Barks played Nancy! Samantha is one of my favorite musical actresses - she plays Eponine in 25th Anniversary of Les Miserables and also in the new film.

  I enjoyed every minute of it :)

"Who will buy
This wonderful morning?
Such a sky
You never did see! 
Who will tie
It up with a ribbon
And put it in a box for me?"


  1. I am so jealous!!! You got to see Samantha Barks. That is just the purest form of awesome. *smile*

  5. Ok, that's amazing. I would adore seeing a live musical like this! Samantha Barks is awesome in Les Mis, I'm sure she was fantastic in this too!
