How Far Can A Little Magic Take You?
From the creator of Charlie and the Charlie Factory, Matilda and the BFG, comes this stunning new musical adaptation of Roald Dahl’s James and the Giant Peach. It’s the delightful, wild and crazy tale of poor James Henry Trotter, whose parents are eaten by a rhinoceros and to make matters worse, he’s sent off to live with his horrid hysterical aunts. Just as he is about to fall into despair, James discovers a magical peach that soon grows to an enormous size, finds a new family in six funny and fractious insects and begins a surreal journey from England all the way across the Atlantic to New York where James, his giant peach and his new friends find themselves landing atop the Empire State Building.
Featuring a score by Pasek and Paul, Broadway’s hottest new musical team, James and the Giant Peach, The Musical, is a warm, whimsical and imaginative adaptation of Roald Dahl’s classic children’s book.
