RUSS ABBOTT

Oliver! The Musical: Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, London, 2010

Russ Abbot is an English comedian, musician and actor who found fame on television during a long career.  He had a string of successful Saturday night prime time shows in the seventies and eighties and later moved into musical theatre.

Abbott is one of the different actors I have seen over the years play the role of Fagin in Oliver! The Musical.  When I saw him, he was starring in the show at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane in London.  Abbot brought just the right level of mischievous humour required to play the role.
