Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is based on Roald Dahl’s 1964 children’s book. Willy Wonka, world famous inventor of the Everlasting Gobstopper, has just made an astonishing announcement. His marvelous—and mysterious—factory is opening its gates...to a lucky few. I am sure many of us are familiar with the iconic movie. Since 2013 this musical production has been playing to sold out crowds on London's West End. Now we have the good fortune to see it on Broadway! And what casting!
I have such a cougar crush on Christian Borle. I don't think I've gotten over Smash being cancelled!!! When I saw his portrayal of Shakespeare in Something Rotten I forgave the network. Well, he is coming back to Broadway!!!Borle has been cast to play the famed candy maker Willy Wonka in the Broadway premiere production of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, the new musical based on Roald Dahl’s seminal children’s book. I had always found Gene Wilder's portrayal of Willy Wonka to be perfection but I find the casting of Borle to be brilliant. Director Jack O’Brien commented, “Christian was the first — and in truth, perhaps the only person I could imagine to create the role of Willy: His combination of child-like fantasy, edge, mystery, and sheer star power seemed destined for this role.”
Tickets: For a short time only they have a very special group rate of $79.00 for orchestra seats. Trick is I have to pay for them in several weeks. I was able to secure the fabulous group rate for 15 orchestra seats for $79.00. You can PAYPAL me as a family or friend to [masked] Everyone will be on the waiting list until I receive their payment. As soon as I receive your payment you will move you up to going.The first 15 member who pay me will have tickets.
Dinner: I will be making reservations for dinner after the show. I'm not going to decide where until closer to the date. Suggestions for restaurants would be appreciated.
All who wander are not lost!
