JoyHog’s Daily Bacon
WHAT’S ON OUR PLATE
- Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. New stage musical version, directed by Sam Mendes, has delicious opening in London.
- Wimbledon. Former champions Roger Federer and Maria Sharapova upset on a wild Day Three.
- A Time To Kill. John Grisham‘s first novel, a hit movie in 1996, is headed to the Broadway stage.
- Crossing Lines. NBC’s international crime show — described as “Criminal Minds Europe” — is solid summer TV. William Fichtner is terrific.
