There isn't a jollier show anywhere than this musical version of The Pickwick Papers. It exactly catches the cheerful and good-hearted spirit of the gentleman with the bald head and round glasses who is its hero. the well-loved story, the tuneful music and witty lyrics provide a recipe that can't fail to delight audiences. The famous "If I Ruled the World" is just one of a host of strong numbers, and there is plenty of work for chorus and dancers.
