Charlie and the Chocolate Factory 200 (GalleyCat)Have you ever wanted to see a live performance given by Oompa Loompas? The Charlie and the Chocolate Factory musical will be heading to Broadway in New York City.

USA Today reports that the story for this theatrical adaptation comes from Roald Dahl’s beloved 1964 book. The opening date for the United States production has been scheduled for Spring 2017.

Here’s more from The New York Times: “A version of the musical has been running in London’s West End since 2013, and is expected to close next year. That production has been commercially successful, but critics were mixed, and the musical is expected to be revised before it opens in New York. Among other moves: The New York version is expected to include more music familiar to audiences from film.” (via Variety)
