Post Possible revival on Broadway.
I read that Cameron Mackintosh might bring back Oliver! to Broadway, with Samantha Barks possibly returning as Nancy, and Declan Smith as Oliver!. He might also remake the movie version. I don't know if its true or just a rumor but I would love it. I finally bought Les Misérables on blu ray and it was great so I think a new Oliver! movie and Broadway production would be a huge success.

I'd love to see Melissa Errico as Nnacy and have them bring Robert Lindsay over from Egland to reprise his brilliant Fagin.

As long as the bring it back, I'd be happy. I have loved this musical since I played Oliver when I was 12.

The Reed film is just about as perfect as any adaptation of the show could be, so I don't see much point in remaking it. Especially if Les Mis is used as the barometer for what a new movie would be like.

the Carol Reed film is excellent but its missing 2 of the finest songs from the score.. I Shall Scream and Thats Your Funeral.

besides the original poster was talking about a stage revvial. its long overdue in America.

Is what I was replying to. But yes, a stage revival would be nice.
