“One of this Autumn’s returnees to the West End, Matilda (Cambridge Theatre) is very welcome. I just love this show: its energy, its wit and its celebration of the idea that you can re-write your own story against all the odds. Dennis Kelly and Tim Minchin’s musical actually improves on Roald Dahl’s original story without losing any of the grotesque. Funny and tender in equal measure. A real little miracle.”
“If you are looking for a family musical on the West End, this one is top of the class. Tim Minchin and Dennis Kelly actually improve on Roald Dahl’s original by giving the little girl at the centre of the story real agency and a chance to change her own story. The music and lyrics are intricate and witty, the design is ingenious, the characterisations are bold and the whole thing has plenty of heart under all of the fizz.”

Tickets from £24

Matilda the Musical Tickets

Matilda the Musical is the multi-award-winning musical inspired by the much-loved book by Roald Dahl, produced by the Royal Shakespeare Company, with book by Dennis Kelly and original songs by Tim Minchin. Matilda The Musical tells the story of brave Matilda, the little girl that discovers magical means to deal with her difficult family and troublesome teachers.

Life at home is boring and frustrating as Matilda’s parents are more interested in what’s on TV than her. School is no fun either, dealing with horrible headteacher Miss Trunchbull who wants to make everyone miserable. Supported by her teacher, the kind Miss Honey, clever Matilda discovers she has special powers and decides to turn the tables on the grown-ups to teach them a lesson!

Critics call Matilda the Musical ‘joyous, gleefully nasty and ingenious’ –The Guardian ‘Matilda is a gem’ –Evening Standard. Time out London says ‘Tim Minchin's wickedly good story of a schoolgirl genius is still irresistible.’
