Matilda The Musical London
Matilda The Musical is the multi-award winning musical from the Royal Shakespeare Company, inspired by the beloved book by the incomparable Roald Dahl.
With Book by Dennis Kelly and original songs by Tim Minchin, Matilda The Musical is the story of an extraordinary little girl who, armed with a vivid imagination and a sharp mind, dares to take a stand and change her own destiny.
Winner of 50 major international awards, including 12 for Best Musical, Matilda continues to delight audiences in London, New York, Sydney and across the United States.
This is my second outing to this show, having first seen it three years ago: I mustn’t leave it so long until my third. The huge set, plays on words, skilful choreography and engrossing acting combine to provide a more than satisfying experience to be enjoyed by all. It’s as much of a work of genius as Matilda herself.
