Show Summary - Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is a new musical based off the 1964 children’s book by Roald Dahl, which has also been adapted into several films among other media. The most well-known adaptations are the 1971 film, which was directed by Mel Stuart and starred Gene Wilder as Willy Wonka, and the 2005 film, which was directed by Tim Burton and starred Johnny Depp. The musical version premiered in London’s West End, where it has been playing since May 2013 at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane. The musical has a book by David Greig, music by Marc Shaiman and lyrics by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman. That songwriting duo was also behind the musicals Hairspray, Catch Me If You Can, Martin Short: Fame Becomes Me, as well as the television show “Smash.” For the Broadway production, the show has taken on a new director since the London incarnation: Jack O’Brien, whose recent directorial credits include It’s Only a Play, Dead Accounts, Macbeth, The Nance and Catch Me If You Can.

What Is Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Like?

In this production, the role of Willy Wonka is played by Christian Borle, who has won two Tony Awards for his performances in Peter and the Starcatcher as well as Something Rotten! and the television show “Smash.” Furthermore, Borle steps off of Something Rotten! and into a brief run in a Lincoln Center production of Falsettos, in the role of Marvin. This show will be in good hands; a timeless classic, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is the story of a young boy named Charlie Bucket, who finds a golden ticket inside a chocolate bar, which leads him to a adventure inside Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory. Thus begins a fantastical tale in which the lucky children fall one by one to the mysterious pitfalls of the magical factory. At the end, only Charlie remains, and gets to ride in a great glass elevator.

Is Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Good for Kids?

The show is appropriate for a family audience, and is most suitable for children aged 6 and up. Children under the age of 4 will not be permitted in the theatre.

The closest parking is not always the best as it often takes longer to park and retrieve your vehicle as fellow theatre goers have the same idea. A better choice of parking may be the second choice or further away by a couple of Avenues.
