The Tony Award-winning show Matilda hits Broadway based on the much-loved children’s book by Roald Dahl and tells the amazing story of an extraordinary girl.
TIME MAGAZINE’S #1 SHOW OF THE YEAR
Matilda The Musical comes to Broadway based on Roald Dahl’s much-loved story about a wonderful little girl with a BIG imagination!
A hit with families, the show won four Tony Awards in 2013 and is the funny and moving story that has kids in fits of laughter and adults in tears.
Adapted by Dennis Kelly and award-winning musician and comedian Tim Minchin, Matilda features a wonderful, inventive score and is a guaranteed great day out on Broadway.
The show follows Matilda as she deals with her self-focused parents by escaping into books. At school she finds an ally in the kindly teacher Miss Honey, but she and the other children must battle with stern headmistress Miss Trunchbull. Using her special powers, she not only helps her fellow students, but Miss Honey as well.
