Story

Based on Roald Dahl’s classic children’s book of the same name, Matilda follows Matilda Wormwood, a bright little girl who immerses herself in books. Matilda is discarded and belittled by her dimwitted parents—her father insists on calling her a boy and harps on her “stupidity” for preferring reading to watching the telly—and her hostile headmistress, the outrageous and wicked Miss Trunchbull. Reclusive, but with an ever-growing imagination and sharp mind, and with a caring protector in her teacher Miss Honey, Matilda dreams of a better life, daring to take a stand against unjust forces and to grasp her destiny in her own, tiny hands.

Critics' Reviews

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

Review by Elisabeth Vincentelli from The New York Post

"Broadway can add yet another blockbuster to its roster of kid-friendly shows. 'Matilda,' based on Roald Dahl’s 1988 children’s novel, is wickeder than 'Wicked,' as beastly as the beasts in 'The Lion King' and as crowd-pleasing as anything on the Great White Way. "
