Genèse: The musical is based on the 1964 children's novel, by Roald Dahl. A first reading of the first act from the show was carried out in New York in May 2010, with the intention of opening in London the following year. Officially confirmed on 18 June 2012, producers announced that the show would play the Theatre Royal Drury Lane from May 2013, with tickets going on sale in October 2012. The show is written by playwright David Greig and directed by Sam Mendes, with choreography by Peter Darling, orchestrations by Doug Besterman, set design by Mark Thompson and lighting design by Paul Pyant. An original score has been penned by Marc Shaiman with lyrics by Scott Wittman and Marc Shaiman (Grammy® winners for Hairspray; Smash). The show presents a more contemporary version of the original story. During previews many changes took place, with the main addition to the show being the addition of the Great Glass Elevator. West End (2013) Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was expected to begin previews on 17 May 2013, at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, London, before holding its official opening gala night on 25 June 2013. The show was originally due to open at the London Palladium. Douglas Hodge was announced to be leading the production in the role of Willy Wonka, with further casting announced on 11 January 2013. Previews of the show were delayed by five days until 22 May, due to "unforeseen problems in the delivery of a piece of stage engineering by a contractor". Following opening night the booking period for the show was extended until 31 May 2014.
Résumé: The mysterious Willy Wonka is opening his Chocolate Factory for just one day, and for Charlie Bucket it promises to be a mouth-watering chance to feast his eyes on sweets beyond his wildest imagination.

Résumé: "We’re gonna be rich… filthy dirty rich!" A wry comedy about a man who sets out to buy a beach, but ends up losing his heart to a village, Bill Forsyth’s magical Local Hero takes to the stage with new music and songs by the legendary Mark Knopfler. Ambitious Texan oil executive Mac MacIntyre arrives in Scotland on a mission to buy a small seaside village and replace it with a refinery. It’s the deal of a lifetime, but Mac soon finds out that putting a price on this scenic spot is more complicated than he bargained for. Before the locals get rich, they must decide what a village is worth –a Maserati? A million? A marriage? Or is feeling at home worth more than even oil money can buy?
