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

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.
