I remember reading a whole lot of Dickens when I was a kid.  Not because I liked it, but because my dad thought it would help me with my SAT's.  Over the years, I pretty much read all of his stories.  Nice change of pace to watch one instead of reading. 

The Lyric Stage Company of Boston presents the New England premiere of the Olivier and Tony Award ® winning theatrical epic, The Life & Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby Parts I & II October 21 through December 19, 2010.

Left penniless by the death of his father and young Nicholas Nickleby assumes responsibility for his mother and sister and seeks help from his Scrooge-like Uncle Ralph. Instantly disliking Nicholas, Ralph sends him to teach in a school run by the sadistic Wackford Squeers. Nicholas decides to escape, taking with him the orphan Smike, one of Squeers’s most abused young charges, and the two embark on a series of adventurous encounters with an array of humanity’s worst and best—greedy fools, corrupt lechers, cheery innocents, and selfless benefactors.
