Something sweet awaits right around the corner, and in this case, it is the new production of Roald Dahl's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory National Tour. After a three year run at London's Theater Royal Drury Lane, the show was reworked for a Broadway bow in April 2017 and closed in January 2018. Although it did not run long on Broadway, the show launched a national tour in September 2018 and is now touring the country. There is also an Australian production planned for 2019.
