Matilda The Musical (London)
Matilda arrived at The Cambridge Theatre with a dream selection of talent assembling under the banner of a Royal Shakespeare Company production.
Stadium-selling comedian Tim Minchin provides original songs, prolific Matthew Warchus directs, and the acclaimed writer Dennis Kelly delivers the book. Together they create a stunning new musical, based on the original story by the inimitable Roald Dahl.
Matilda is a captivating musical that revels in the anarchy of childhood, the power of imagination, and the inspiring story of a girl who dared to change her destiny. This magical show is pure escapism for all ages and the lead performance of the young Matilda has to be seen with your own eyes to believe. Never before has such a young talent filled a West End stage so magnificently.
The Royal Shakespeare Company's world première production has mesmerised young and old alike and continues to play to packed houses at London's Cambridge Theatre.
‘It’s hard to imagine a show capturing the spirit of Roald Dahl’s literary world more perfectly than this one’

Fantastic Family Show
7 March 2020
I saw this last night with my 7 and 6 year olds, they absolutely loved it! With a bit of adult humour that went over their heads and an amazing cast, we were all blown away! I loved that the cast were using the stalls aisles, giving us lots to see on and off the stage... the use of lights and confetti gave great effects too... would really recommend!

Matilda was more than I was expecting. I took my 11year old Grandaughter as a Christmas present and the whole production was brilliant from beginning to end. I would strongly recommend it to families and adults especially children around my grandaughters age. One of the most exciting things for her was the cast using the aisles, especially as we had the bonus of aisle seats.

Excellent show which didn't dissapoint. As I'm not a musical lover, was worried I might not like it, but was hugely impressed with such a smart creative and energetic show. I certainly felt it was value for the ticket price.

Fabulous cast and general vibe
25 February 2016
Such a talented cast of characters, many of which play multiple roles! The evil Head Mistress is especially impressive in her rendition, really putting it all into her performance. The comedic timings were also superb - couldn't stop laughing at a few key gags. Highly recommend!

Easily the stand-out musical of the decade!

Gleefully Nasty, an evening of unadulterated bliss!
Matilda is a fabulous family fizzer. It has strong tunes, witty lyrics and enough ‘eew!’ moments to satisfy the most revolting urchin.
