Charlie and the Chocolate Factory has been dazzling audiences in the West End since 2013, but after taking a final bow in January, has made its way across the pond to the Big Apple. Based on one of Roald Dahl’s most iconic tales, this Broadway show promises to bring the beloved story to life before your eyes.
Watch in awe as you see your favourite characters on stage, including the extraordinary factory owner, Mr Willy Wonka (played by Tony Award winner Christian Borle). The elaborate sets look just like scenes from the movie, as the stage is transformed into the amazing factory and covered with sweets, chocolates and candy canes, complete with a flowing chocolate fountain!
You can expect plenty of singing and dancing, and the show will of course feature all your favourite songs, like “Pure Imagination”, “The Candy Man” and some mischievous performances from the Oompa Loompa’s. A brand new score has been created by the Grammy and Tony award winning songwriters of Hairspray (Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman), so you’ll get the chance to enjoy some new music as well as the old classics.

If you’re not familiar with the story (where have you been?), young Charlie Bucket is the star of the show. The most exciting thing in his town is the enormous chocolate factory owned by the mysterious Willy Wonka. The factory has been closed for years ever since spies tried to steal Mr Wonka’s famous recipes, but one day steam starts billowing from the chimneys again and the factory is back in action. When a competition is announced for the chance to visit the factory the world goes into a frenzy and Charlie’s life changes forever.
Whether you’re visiting with kids, big kids or the whole family, tick Broadway off your bucket list with this unforgettable show.
