"Dressed in colorful motley fabrics and early 19th-century styles by Amanda Seymour, the costume designer, a well rehearsed ensemble sings, dances and assumes the smaller roles with expertise and verve."
– Michael Sommers, The New York Times
"Amanda Seymour's costume designs are amazing, from the ruffled, flouncing skirts of the prostitutes to Fagan's faded dressing gown to the well dressed gentleman, Mr. Brownlow, played with kindness by David Hess."
– Liz Kiell, The Alternative Press
"A marvelous, no..a spectacular example is now 'on stage' as director Mark S. Hoebee (also Producing Artistic Director) is closing out the 2013 portion of the 75th Anniversary Season with a world-class production of Lionel Bart's now classic Charles Dickens musical Oliver! Bart's award winning book, music and lyrics are beautifully presented on the Playhouse stage via a cast of outstanding veteran Broadway singers and dancers, highly creative, ovation earning sets, gorgeous period costumes...simply, stagecraft at the hightest level."
– Rick Busciglio, Northern New Jersey Theater Examiner
