Charlie and the Chocolate Factory - Drury Lane Theatre

Director Sam Mendes (above) follows up his block-bustin’ Bond Skyfall with a return to his roots, the stage.

He helms a new musical adaptation of Roald Dahl’s classic about the young boy, magical sweet-maker Willy Wonka and his decidedly weird factory.

The most challenging thing, Mendes says, is making “the familiar feel weird again”.  A tale loved by all, this is going to be one of this year’s tastiest triumphs.

£25+, May 18-Nov 30, 7.30pm; 
Wed/Sat, 2.30pm WC2B 5JF
