“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.”
