Is anyone as excited about this as I am?

I'm ridiculously excited. I went to the Box Office to buy our tickets and came out feeling like Charlie with his golden ticket, all butterflies and smiles.

I don't often get too excited in advance as so many shows disappoint... But I've heard too many amazing things about this from various people in the know , and with that creative team , I think we are in for one almighty treat ..

My excitement has reached dangerous levels now. They have really ramped up the marketing for it now and I've seen a few articles appearing about it over the weekend. I really like the way they haven't hyped it to death.

Can't wait to see the choclate room with the chocolate river and Augustus Gloop being sucked up the pipe and shot away from the rising building pressure, whether they're going down the goose that lays the golden egg route as per the original film or if they're stayiing true to the book and having squirrels attacking Veruca Salt (she's a bad nut) and how the kids will come out at the end, oh and the glass elevator.
Don't we get to be happy? At some point down the line, don't we get to relax without some new tsuris to push me yet further from you!

Who dare tell the lambs in Spring what fate the later season brings?

They are adapting it from the novel and disregarding the film adaptations, I believe.
