The Snozberries Taste Like Death

Forget Sweeney Todd—the original Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory is the most disturbing film musical ever made. Those dead-eyed Oompa Loompas? Gene Wilder playing Wonka as a psychotic dandy barely containing his own madness? A bunch of asshole children being systemically killed off (that part is mostly conjecture, but we never see what happens to them after each of their “mishaps”)? It’s creepy as hell. And the songs! There’s a reason Marilyn Manson covered “The Wondrous Boat Ride” on its first album. This 40th anniversary singalong might be the only one of its kind to end with the entire audience weeping in the fetal position. G. Crystal Ballroom. 3 pm (all ages) and 6 pm (21+) Sunday, June 26.
