Don’t expect any singing during the Houston premiere of Neil Bartlett’s adaptation of Oliver Twist. This production is meant to be more hard-hitting — after all, Charles Dickens’s tale is about an innocent child thrown into the dangerous street life orphans faced in 19th-century England. 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, 3 p.m. Sundays. Through November 12. Theatre Southwest, 8944 Clarkcrest. For information, call 713-661-9505 or visit www.theatresouthwest.com. $14 to $16.
Fridays, Saturdays. Starts: Oct. 21. Continues through Nov. 12, 2011
