Worth The Hype? Charlie and the Chocolate Factory at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane

There are usually three reasons I'm late to seeing a show: I don't feel a yearning to see the show, I was busy when the show first opened so it slipped off my radar or (in this case), the price tag on a ticket is so ridiculously expensive that I've had to wait for a weekday matinee in term time to come around to get a fairly priced ticket. And yes, it really has taken me the two years since this show first opened for a day like that to arrive.
