OOMPA LOOMPA, DOOMPA DEE DOO, I GOT ANOTHER ALBUM FOR YOU!! The Broadway premiere of the West End hit Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (currently in previews at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre) is set to release a cast recording of the Broadway cast (led by 2 time Tony winner Christian Borle) from Masterworks Broadway. The new cast album will be available digitally June 2nd, 2017 and hit stores on June 23rd, 2017.
This will mark as the 2nd cast album of the CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACOTRY musical. The 1st one came out in 2013 of the West End production (which was led by Tony and Olivier Award winner Douglas Hodge) from Sony Classical Records.
CHARLIE features a score by Tony winners Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman plus songs from the original 1971 film Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory by Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley (including the iconic PURE IMAGINATION).
For the Broadway production, songs from London were either cut or have been rewritten. In addition, one of the biggest changes for Broadway is that more of the beloved songs from the classic 1971 film were put into the show (including I’VE GOT A GOLDEN TICKET, THE CANDY MAN, and THE OOMPA LOOMPA SONG).
Opening Night for CHARLIE AND THE CHOCHOLATE FACTORY is also set for April 23rd, 2017.
Who is excited?!!
Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman’s score for the new Broadway musical Charlie and the Chocolate Factory?will be preserved on a cast album from Masterworks …
