I really liked the way each of the kids was introduced, it was very well done, though the Mike TeeVee song was just bizarre.
The Oompaloompas were a disappointment for me, this kind of technique has been done to death, I hoped they might have come up with something a bit more original, and why the Bernie Clifton style squirrels? Wouldn't people inside squirrel costumes suffice?
I thought when we are first shown inside the factory was a disappointment too, this should have been the wow moment but it looked a bit naff, it reminded me of the Wizard of Oz at the Palladium. The use of projection throughout was very well done though.
I liked Hodge as Wonka, though would be interested to see it again in a few months to see how he develops the character.
The major thing that irked me was the audibility, a LOT of the time lyrics could not be understood.
Despite the obscene amount of money they must have spent on staging this, one of the most impressive moments is a simple paper plane flying on a wire up to the balcony! Though I must say the glass elevator did look amazing, I actually got goosebumps during Pure Imagination.
There is lots to enjoy and I had a nice night but it's not a fantastic musical.
