About the show

ROALD DAHL’s most treasured tale has arrived in the land where sweet dreams come true: Broadway. Starring two-time Tony Award® winner CHRISTIAN BORLE and directed by three-time Tony Award-winning director JACK O’BRIEN, this new musical features the beloved songs from the original film, including “Pure Imagination” and “The Candy Man,” alongside a brand new score from the songwriters of Hairspray, MARC SHAIMAN and SCOTT WITTMAN, a book from DAVID GREIG and choreography from JOSHUA BERGASSE.

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. That includes young Charlie Bucket, whose life definitely needs sweetening. He and four other golden ticket winners will embark on a mesmerizing, life-changing journey through Wonka’s wondrous world. Get ready for chocolate waterfalls, exquisitely nutty squirrels and the great glass elevator, all to be revealed by Wonka’s army of curious Oompa-Loompas. Get your tickets today and unwrap a world of pure imagination.

"A marvelous show for everyone!
