That, combined with a first act that just works too damned hard to win us over, makes for some rough going and is also atypical of Lapine’s subtlety and attention to detail.

The new stage musical will incorporate songs from the Wilder version by Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley, including "Pure Imagination."Borle won his first Tony Award for featured actor in a play in 2012 for ."Christian was the first — and in truth, perhaps the only person I could imagine to create the role of Willy," said O' Brien in a statement.

"His combination of child-like fantasy, edge, mystery and sheer star power seemed destined for this role."Securing the Lunt-Fontanne gives producers a prime address for the hefty production for what they clearly hope will be a long time, right near the heart of Times Square.

But, to paraphrase one of the sow’s funnier lyrics, that’s the miracle, of Finn-yism.

That musical adaptation of the classic Roald Dahl children's novel begins previews next March, with exact dates to be set. As previously reported, Jack O' Brien will direct the production, with choreography by another team of composer Marc Shaiman and co-lyricist Scott Wittman, with a book adaptation by Scottish playwright David Greig.

The ballads, however, especially “Unlikely Lovers,” are catch-in-your-throat soaring.

The central plot points of Act II (the two parts were originally three, written over a decades’ span and ultimately elided into the single show) are Jason’s impending bar mitzvah, and Marvin’s reconciliation with Whizzer. Charlotte (Tracie Thoms) and Cordelia (Betsy Wolfe), a kosher caterer devoted to creating the perfect nouvelle bar mitzvah cuisine.

Mendel and Trina are married and Jason, to his great relief, has discovered girls. Charlotte sings that “something bad is happening” at the hospital, where more and more once-healthy young men are arriving with an unknown disease that’s killing them. What’s endearingly right about the show is the casting across the board: In addition to the two leads, Block, recovering from illness the night I saw the show, is particularly fine in the very Sondheimian “I’m Breaking Down.” Uranowitz makes the annoying Mendel less so.
