Christian Borle Set to Play Willy Wonka on Broadway!

Christian Borle has landed the coveted role of Willy Wonka in the upcoming Broadway musical Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

The musical is based on the beloved Roald Dahl novel and recently was a hit on London’s West End. Hairspray co-writers Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman wrote the music and lyrics for the new musical!

Christian was the first — and in truth, perhaps the ONLY person I could imagine to create the role of Willy,” director Jack O’Brien said in a statement (via TheWrap). “His combination of child-like fantasy, edge, mystery, and sheer star power seemed destined for this role. I confess I prayed a lot! But this one, at least, was answered!”

Christian is a two-time Tony winner for his work in the shows Peter and the Starcatcher and Something Rotten. He is also known for his work on NBC’s Smash.
