CandideThe Menier Chocolate Factory's Christmas musical this year is a revival of Leonard Bernstein's 1956 Broadway classic Candide, a witty musical adaptation of the 18th century novella by Voltaire. Candide tells the story of a young man determined to follow his instructor's creed of mindless optimism and sets out on a journey to prove that 'life is happiness indeed'. Fra Fee (who played Courfeyrac in the film version of "Les Miserables") stars alongside Scarlett Strallen, whose theatre credits include Cassie in A Chorus Line, Singin' in the Rain and Mary Poppins, and James Dreyfus - who is best known for his appearances in TV series The Thin Blue Line. The production is directed by Matthew White whose credits include Top Hat in the West End, with choreography by Adam Cooper. The Chocolate Factory has a tradition of sell-out Christmas musicals, many of which have gone on to transfer to the West End or Broadway, so book early.

 

About Menier Chocolate Factory

Housed in a former chocolate factory, this innovative theatre has rapidly established itself as one of London's best. Since opening in 2004, it has had half-a-dozen West End transfers, most of them slick revivals of recent plays and musicals, including Merrily We Roll Along, A Little Night Music, Sunday in the Park With George, Dealer's Choice, and Little Shop of Horrors.
