Omid Djalili has taken over the leading role from Rowan Atkinson, playing Fagin in the latest production of the hit musical Oliver

21st July 2009

After a 6 month run, Rowan Atkinson took a final bow in the role of Fagin in the hit musical Oliver on Saturday.  He made way for the new lead - comedian and after dinner entertainer and host, Omid Djalili.

After his success with his own TV show The Omid Djalili Show, the larger than life Iranian comedian will be in the roll at The Theatre Royal Drury Lane for the next couple of months.  Although this is a totally new area for Omid, he is determined to make a huge success and rumours from the dressing room suggest that Omid has a fine voice.

Omid Djalili's run as Fagin in Oliver at The Theatre Royal Drury Lane commenced last night, Monday 20th July 2009.  As one of our favourite corporate comedians here at Speakers Corner, we wish him every success and, for the time being, musical theatre's gain is the corporate event's loss!
