** ''Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka'', a 2005 U.S. stage musical created for the touring children's theatre circuit. It uses the 1971 film's songs and adds new numbers by Leslie Bricusse, the film's lyricist, but the script is significantly different to the point that it isn't promoted as the loose ScreenToStageAdaptation it is. Notable for existing in ''four'' [[ReCut different versions]], ranging from a half-hour "Kids" version (suitable for a grade-school assembly, say) to a full-length version that can use child and adult actors. (As of June 2015, Music Theatre International no longer licenses it, likely because they license Warner Bros. Theatre Ventures shows. The 2013 West End musical is one of those, so MTI probably intends to pick up the rights to that version at some point.)

* DevelopmentHell: The initial plan for a Broadway transfer to launch in the 2014-15 season was scrapped, partially due to Creator/SamMendes being busy with other projects and the need to wait on a theatre big enough to accommodate its huge physical production becoming available. The show is set to open on Broadway in 2017 with Jack O'Brien taking over the directiing duties from the busy Mendes, who is staying on as producer.

* DevelopmentHell: The initial plan for a Broadway transfer to launch in the 2014-15 season has already been scrapped, partially due to Creator/SamMendes being busy with other projects. It also may need to wait on a theatre big enough to accommodate its huge physical production becoming available. As of October 2014, composer/co-lyricist Marc Shaiman has stated that a transfer is still in the cards, and the script is getting revisions to boot -- perhaps as a response to the mediocre reviews it received from American critics who saw it in the West End. In June 2015, it was announced that the current plan is to open the show in New York City in the 2016-17 season.
