The West End musical Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, featuring a score by Tony Award winners Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, has been immortalized on a cast recording, to be released today via Sony Music. Featuring a book by David Grieg, the production, inspired by Roald Dahl's novel of the same name, stars Tony winner Douglas Hodge as the mysterious chocolatier Willy Wonka.

Additionally, the production has extended its ticket-booking period at London's Theatre Royal Drury Lane through November 1, 2014. It has been seen by almost 300,000 people since it began performances in May 2013.
