"EVEN IF YOU FIND THAT LIFE'S NOT FAIR, IT DOESN'T MEAN THAT YOU JUST HAVE TO GRIN AND BEAR IT..."

ABOUT THE SHOW

Matilda is a little girl with astonishing wit, intelligence and psychokinetic powers. She's unloved by her cruel parents but impresses her schoolteacher, the highly loveable Miss Honey. Over the course of her first term at school, Matilda and Miss Honey have a profound effect on each other's lives, as Miss Honey begins not only to recognize but also appreciate Matilda's extraordinary personality. Matilda's school life isn't completely smooth sailing, however – the school's mean headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, hates children and just loves thinking up new punishments for those who don't abide by her rules. But Matilda has courage and cleverness in equal amounts, and could be the school pupils' saving grace!

"The most satisfying and subversive musical ever to come out of Britain... its melding of song, dance and story is as classic as Oklahoma!... works with astonishing slyness and grace to inculcate us with its radical point of view."

- The New York Times

"An evening of unadulterated bliss.  Writer Dennis Kelly and composer and lyricist Tim Minchin go to the top of the class with this anarchically joyous, gleefully nasty and ingenious musical adaptation of Roald Dahl's story."

- The Guardian

"Once in a blue moon, a show comes out blazing and restores your faith in Broadway. Matilda The Musical is that show."

- The New York Post
