My birthday is actually in June, but we weren't able to get tickets for the new Charlie And The Chocolate Factory musical till July, because it was in previews up until then. I knew I wanted to go and see the musical adaptation of my all time favourite film on my birthday, ever since I first heard about it a year or so ago. My outfit on the day was of course totally Wonka inspired, complete with Margiela Candy Clutch and all.

The musical certainly didn't disappoint, I am a huge fan of the book and original 1971 film but hate the 2005 Tim Burton remake. I was initially worried about what route the new musical would go down but it was the perfect combination of everything. It has the fantasy, humor and catchphrases of the first film but without the dark demented vibe of the second. It stays true to the book but is slightly more modernized in the same way as the second film. I would totally recommend going to see it, if you can.
