Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (Broadway, Lunt-Fontanne Theatre, 2017) | Playbill

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

For more than 50 years Roald Dahl's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory has captured imaginations around the world, and now for the first time Broadway audiences are invited to experience Willy Wonka’s delightful and semi-dark chocolate world first-hand. Starring Tony-winner Christian Borle (Something Rotten!, Falsettos) and featuring a new score by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman (Hairspray), Charlie and the Chocolate Factory features chocolate waterfalls, exquisitely nutty squirrels and the great glass elevator, all revealed by Wonka's army of curious Oompa-Loompas.


Charlie Bucket, an imaginative boy with a knack for making something out of nothing, dreams of acquiring a golden ticket to tour Willy Wonka's over-the-top chocolate factory and can’t believe his luck when it actually happens. Fellow contest winners: the gluttonous German, Augustus Gloop; Daddy's spoiled rotten princess, Veruca Salt; chewing gum celebrity, Violet Beauregarde; and over-amped computer hacker, Mike Teavee, have no idea what they're getting themselves into, as they each learn lessons about selfishness and greed from Wonka, who is not only out of his mind but potentially dangerous.

You'll devour this family-friendly adventure that's full of mouth-watering visuals that "Must be Believed to be Seen." "Strike that! Reverse it!"
