Theatre Royal, Drury Lane

  • Londons oldest theatre is in its fourth incarnation. The third burned down in 1809. It is said to be one of the worlds most haunted theatres, so watch out for The Man in Grey!
  • Charlie and the Chocolate Factory: great sets and costumes and choreography; a true visual spectacle. Performance was great, particularly that of the five children; sadly the songs were uninspired.
  • Charlie & Chocolate Factory really was the golden ticket. Was brilliant.
  • Now on Charlie & the chocolate factory; Do recommend
  • Charlie And The Chocolate Factory musical is fantastic!
  • If you love quality musical theatre, do not see Willy Wonka (a new musical). Go home to watch the original film and save your money!
