Roald Dahl’s most treasured tale, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, 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 original Broadway cast album features 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, with a book from internationally acclaimed playwright David Greig. 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.
