Neil Morrissey stars as Fagin in Oliver!
Date Posted: 17/05/11
Neil Morrissey and Brian Conley have been named in the cast for a national tour of Oliver!
The former Men Behaving Badly actor will share the role of Fagin with musical theatre star Conley when the roadshow opens in Cardiff on Tuesday December 20th.
It will then move on to Manchester, Birmingham, Southampton, Edinburgh and Plymouth, before the cast entertain those booking Newcastle hotels at the city's Theatre Royal from Tuesday September 11th 2012.
Producer Cameron Mackintosh said that the show has been "close to his heart" since he first appeared in it 46 years ago.
"Little did I know then that I would one day be this brilliant musical's producer and co-owner. Every time I produce the show Lionel Bart’s marvellous musical becomes a smash hit all over again, so I’m thrilled to bring you yet another spectacular new version starring Neil Morrissey and Brian Conley," he added.
Earlier this year Oliver! closed at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane, London, after enjoying a two-year run.
