ROALD DAHL’s most treasured tale is coming to the land where sweet dreams come true–Broadway–starring two-time Tony Award® winner CHRISTIAN BORLE (Something Rotten!, Peter and the Starcatcher) as the magical maestro Willy Wonka himself. And who better to conjure up this confectionary wonder than three-time Tony Award-winning director JACK O’BRIEN (Hairspray , The Front Page).
It’s the perfect recipe for a delectable treat: the beloved songs from the original film, including “Pure Imagination” and “The Candy Man,” alongside a brand new score from the Grammy® and Tony-winning songwriters of Hairspray, MARC SHAIMAN and SCOTT WITTMAN, a book from internationally acclaimed playwright DAVID GREIG and choreography from Emmy® Award winner JOSHUA BERGASSE. Audiences around the world have long adored the best-selling book and films, but none have experienced the magic of Wonka quite like this–until now.
