Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory @ The Hollywood Bowl

Postby Muppetboy09 » Tue Sep 19, 2017 9:03 pm

So, it looks like Al will be playing an Oompa Loompa at the Hollywood Bowl this fall!

“Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory In Concert at the Hollywood Bowl: A Live-to-Film Celebration” is also reeling in other stars to play the memorable characters. Weird Al Yankovic will lend his musical talents to the role of orange factory workers, Oompa Loompas, Elle King will sing “I Want It Now” as the bratty Veruca Salt, Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad) will appear “The Candy Man,” and Richard Kind as Grandpa Joe. After leaving Natasha, Pierre, & the Great Comet of 1812, it seems Ingrid Michaelson isn’t done with her stage musical pursuits, as she is slated to play Charlie’s mother, Mrs. Bucket.

Awesome to see Al at the Hollywood Bowl for a third time! Don't know if I'll go to this one, but maybe?


"Live to film" is where they play the movie, and have people read the lines, while the orchestra does the music, correct?

It was my understanding that he wasn't just an Oompa Loompa, but the Oompa Loompas.
And the winner of the Al-TV "One Night Stand" is.... nah.

Looks like Friday's show is cancelled. :(

Anyone know why?

Jackie and I are still coming out for Saturday's show! Guess we have a free night now on Friday. What's there to do Friday nights in L.A. or Hollywood?

Check the schedules on ucbtheater.com - there are now two locations in the LA area and usually about 3 shows per night on the weekends!

Judging by this Instagram video Al is the "head Oompa-loompa", not all of them at once.
