Winner of over 85 international awards, including five Tony Awards®, Matilda The Musical is based on the beloved novel by best-selling author Roald Dahl. Matilda is an extraordinary girl with a vivid imagination and a sharp mind whose talents are constantly belittled by her cruel parents and headmistress. Dreaming of a better life for herself, she dares to take a stand against these oppressive forces and takes her destiny into her own hands.

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

"Smart, quirky, and sublimely good fun....A moving and subtle spectacle which will have kids in stitches and adults in tears. It is guaranteed to delight anyone who’s ever been a child." – TimeOut
