But in 2006, he moved from being in front of the spotlights to making sure the spotlights and everything else at Everyman functioned smoothly, as the company's production manager. Prue had a practical reason for taking that job. "I have a wife and family," he said. "I wanted a little more of a steady paycheck, something 52 weeks a year, instead of nine- or 10-week chunks.

Oliver!, the Lionel Bart musical based on Charles Dickens' Oliver Twist, can be a tough theatrical nut to crack. On one level, it comes off as a male counterpart to Annie, what with workhouse orphan boys extolling the glories of food and singing pickpockets beckoning young Oliver to consider himself one of the family. But the backdrop for it all is 19th-century London in the frightful throes of the Industrial Revolution. And as Dickens made clear for all time, neglect, exploitation, abuse and murder quickly dispel the optimism of tomorrow being only a day away - though, thank heavens, things come out right for Oliver by story's end. So we're left with a "children's show" that, in reality, is anything but, as life's darkest elements insinuate themselves into that bright, peppy score so full of hits such as "Food, Glorious Food," "Consider Yourself" and "I'd Do Anything."
