Award-Winning Adaptation of Children’s Book

Matilda, the multi award-winning adaptation of Roald Dahl’s beloved children’s book about an extraordinary little girl , comes to Broadway after a sold-out run in London’s West End.

An astonishing story of an extraordinary little girl who overcomes rotten parents, a terrifying school, and a vicious head mistress….and proves that even if you’re little, you can do big things.

After a twelve-week trial run staged by the Royal Shakespeare Company, Matilda premiered in 2011 at the Cambridge Theatre in London’s West End, where it won an Olivier Award for Best Musical.  It had its Broadway premiere in 2013 at the Schubert Theatre.

Critic’s Rating from Time Out New York

“Matilda” maintains a high level of cheeky mischief while hitting the requisite sentimental notes and a refreshing anti-authoritarian message. Warchus’s pop-gothic staging, animated by Darling’s herky-jerky choreography, revels in sight gags and gross-out set pieces. Minchin’s score is a deft blend of Britpop, show tunes and Danny Elfman with clever (sometimes overly winking) lyrics that balance subversion with simple truths. “Matilda” is wickedly smart and wildly fun.

Audience Review from Elroy

Great performance…was truly impressed by the artists especially Matilda, the teacher and the head teacher. Highly recommend as a good family show.
