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.

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.

Review by Roma Torre from NY1

Rejoice, my theatergoing comrades. The children’s revolution has arrived on these shores, and it is even more glorious than we were promised.

Review by Ben Brantley from New York Times
