Post The many reprises of Oliver!
"Oliver!" probably has the most reprises of any musicals (along with Little Mermaid and King and I), so I thought I'd start a thread devoted entirely to the show's reprises. I think that with the exception of the Where Is Love Reprise (Brownlow's maid gets a solo? Really???), the reprises work well and should have been included in the film. Thoughts?

Out of the 13 songs in the show, 7 of them have reprises. To me, that's a lot.

Something Wonderful- I was referring to the reprise after Lady Thiang's brief exchange with Kralahome.
Getting to Know You- The reprise is immediately after the song is over.
We Kiss in a Shadow- After Tuptim realizes she is being watched, Lun Tha runs away and Tuptim reprises the song.
