The Jewish Chronicle - - LIFE -

A NEW mu­si­cal about the life of song­writer Lionel Bart is start­ing a na­tional tour, telling the story of the man who started out as the youngest son of an East End Jewish fam­ily of tai­lors, the Ber­gliters.

Most fa­mous for Oliver!, Bart’s ca­reer tanked in the 1970s when he was de­clared bank­rupt. West End star John Barr takes the role of Bart in the show, which has been writ­ten by Si­mon Han­ning.

The Story of Bart is at the Ken­neth More Theatre in Il­ford on Oc­to­ber 7 and 8, and at the Radlett Cen­tre on Oc­to­ber 29.
