Charlie and the Chocolate Factory - 2017 - Broadway Tickets, News, Info & More

$69-$200

ROALD DAHL's most treasured tale is coming to the land where sweet dreams come true- Broadway- in a delicious new musical! 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. It's a world of pure imagination.



And who better to conjure up this confectionary wonder than three-time Tony Award-winning director JACK O'BRIEN, the Grammy and Tony-winning songwriters of Hairspray, MARC SHAIMAN and SCOTT WITTMAN, and internationally acclaimed playwright DAVID GRIEG. 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.

Featured Reviews For Charlie and the Chocolate Factory


Review: Some Sugar but Not Enough Spice in This ‘Chocolate Factory’ - New York Times
Don't expect a sugar rush from "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory," the new musical that opened at the Lunt-Fontanne Theater on Sunday...This big but tentative show - which features a book by David Greig and songs by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman - doesn't burst with flavor of any kind, at least not during its exposition-crammed first act. Only in its second half does the show acquire a distinct taste, and it definitely isn't confectionary.

‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ review - Broadway News
What world are we in? Who is this show for? These strike me as the central problems with this adaptation and production. There are "nudge, nudge, wink, wink, say no more" references intended presumably to keep adult theatergoers interested. For example, Veruca proclaims to Russian Dad at one point, "Buy me North Korea!" But the tonal handling of the surreal so essential to Dahl is neither consistent nor secure. If Charlie is meant to be the incorruptible anchor of our journey, what do we make of this exchange? Wonka to Charlie, "Do you like seeing children maimed?" To which Charlie responds, "No, but - I love seeing how chocolate is made." It seems even Charlie has his price.

Cody Williams has led a successful career on Broadway since 2010. He began his professional career in MEMPHIS on Broadway and has continued until now to CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY in 2017, where audiences from all over have been witness to Williams' incredible high flying dance power. But Cody Williams is a man of many trades, most recently becoming Producer of NY1's OnStage with Frank DiLella. I recently interviewed Cody to find out how he first fell in love with theatre - and where he sees this all going.
