About the Show Less...

Oliver! composer Lionel Bart's musical about the Hunchback of Notre Dame gets its World Premiere staging at the King's Head, 50 years after he started writing it. Read More >

The tragic tale of deformed outsider Quasimodo and the gypsy girl Esmerelda has been told many times, from the earliest silent cinema to a popular Disney cartoon. In the hands of Lionel Bart, it becomes a poignant protest against prejudice and corruption, with all the great tunes and direct emotional impact one would expect from the composer of Oliver!

Based on Victor Hugo’s novel The Hunchback of Notre Dame (Hugo also wrote the novel Les Miserables, on which the musical is based), Lionel Bart’s Quasimodo was a labour of love on which he worked for over three decades.
