Two-time Tony winner Christian Borle stars as magical candy master Willy Wonka in the new Broadway musical adaptation of Roald Dahl's beloved children's book. More…
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. Directed by three-time Tony-winning director Jack O'Brien, with new tunes by Tony-winning songwriters Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman of 'Hairspray' fame alongside classic songs from the 1971 movie.
See it if You have a child who's already seen Lion King, Aladdin, Wicked etc; You want a preview of a touring show/community theater production
Don't see it if You're expecting a visually or musically creative show. Sets inexplicably minimal and music (other than songs from 1960s film) forgettable.
See it if you like light, entertaining Broadway musicals. I was pleasantly surprised and enjoyed it. Borle is excellent as was the rest of the cast.
Don't see it if if you are not a Dahl fan and don't like some of his darker side which turns up in Act 2.
See it if Christian Borle!!!!!!! He absolutely STEALS the show, are a fan of the original story with a bit more graphic visuals of the childrens demis
Don't see it if You arent a fan of the original story and dont like shows with undetermined child death
See it if If you like the remake movie, you will like it. For families!!! Christian is great. Ommpa lompahs were so cute
Don't see it if Scenery is disappointing. Maybe an older crowd wouldn't like it
See it if You liked any/all of the movie versions. If you are willing to see Christian Borle in absolutely anything. And I am.
Don't see it if You will have small children with you; they will be both frightened and bored. If you don't care for Christian Borle. Who could that be?
See it if you love the story of charlie and the chocolate factory or if you have kids.
Don't see it if you don't like charlie and the chocolate factory or if you like traditional broadway
See it if You are taking children of all ages. It is fun and Christian Boyle as Willy Wonka is as good as ever. Great sets.
Don't see it if If you don't have a child to take or unless you are a child at heart.
See it if you want something whimsical and fun, love Christian Borle (who doesnt?!), and/or love the movie/books. Charming, magical effects.
Don't see it if you dislike adults playing children and/or audiences full of children.
See it if the oompas are done in a really interesting way. The rest of the show fell flat. Hard to watch. Maybe see if you're a big wonka fan
Don't see it if there are better shows to see that are good for the whole family
See it if You love the Roald Dahl story and the two movies that have been out for years. You love colorful fun happy shows. You are bringing children
Don't see it if You don't like fantasy and color and happy shows with crazy weird ideas.
See it if You love the lovable Christian Borle and if you're a fan of the Dahl story or film. It's all brought to life deliciously.
Don't see it if You like efficient story telling. For what it is - it's long. Bring kids and your inner child - for the fun, silliness.
See it if you are looking for fun, and a pleasant, happy show. Add points if you are bringing kids, and/or you are a Christian Borle fan! 😁
Don't see it if you are looking for high drama.
See it if you have kids that want to see it. It's definitely a show tailored to young audiences
Don't see it if You want a well-done show.....Only highlights of the show were Christian and John's performances and a few moments
See it if you're curious or just want to see Christian Borle and Jackie Hoffman on stage.
Don't see it if you expect any sort of pure imagination because this production completely lacks in that department. It also lacks consistency.
See it if Well, unfortunately i got the understudy to Christian Borle. He was the only reason I wanted to see it, but it was a lottery ticket.
Don't see it if I can't believe how many kids came to see an 8pm Sat. Performance. It has some very dark themes....nightmare stuff.
See it if You need to see a show that's family-friendly
Don't see it if You don't appreciate shows that are seemingly just looking to cash in on a childhood classic without putting any effort or love into it
