Quotable Quote:
"I think there's something about the world of [Matilda] which is exciting for a director like me because it's fantastical and visually extravagant, the characters are extreme and there's a wonderful color palette. But that's not just empty treats for the audience—it's all built around a story which has a lot to say about life and putting the wrongs of the world to right." — Warchus in an interview with Broadway.com, 3/15
