Just recieved this CD in the post and was totally blown away, Jodie Prenger proves she was the worthy winner of i'll do anything and brings a new tenderness to Nancy. Having believed there was only one Fagin that of Ron Moody, Rowan Atkinson takes on the role with a touch of Blackadder and Mr Bean and i can see why Cameron Mackintosh had persued him for so long to play the role. The Children who vied for the role of Oliver on the same show as Jodi do not disappoint.
To have a live version of the show makes a huge impression for those like me who have yet to see the show and is totally different from the usual cast recordings.It was clear to me why Sir Cameron loves Oliver as a show and Lionel Barts classic show has been given a new life, with this excellent version. Consider yourself lucky as you listen to this version of the show, and i will be there in the Auidence in August with my Girlfriend enjoying every second of this great revival of a timeless show classic
