What is Matilda about?
History Behind Matilda
Style of Theater
"Matilda the Musical," the London import that opened on Thursday night, is the most satisfying and subversive musical ever to come out of Britain...As directed by Matthew Warchus, with a bright, efficient book by Dennis Kelly and addictive songs by Tim Minchin, "Matilda" is as much an edge-of-the-seats nail biter as a season-finale episode of "Homeland."...Above all it's an exhilarating tale of empowerment, as told from the perspective of the most powerless group of all."
-Ben Brantley (New York Times 4/11/13)
"For once, you can believe the hype. A treat for ears and eyes, brain and heart, the glorious "Matilda" has it all - plus lasers! "
-Elisabeth Vincentelli (NY 4/11/13)
"With its pizazz, humor, style, intelligence and all-around entertainment quotient, "Matilda" is, far and away, the best new musical I've seen this season. I recommend it for children and smarter adults."
-Robert Feldberg (NorthJersey.com 4/11/13)
-Finished in 1996
- Released June 7,2005
