Absolutely loved this musical! It was very very funny which was something that I hadn't expected! My boyfriend isn't big on musicals and even he was sitting next to me laughing and listened to the soundtrack the next day! The songs were brilliant and the actors were fantastic especially miss trunchbull - did not expect her to be played by... More

Went to see Matilda as a treat for daughter and what a superb show it was! The children in it were faultless and all the actors in it played their parts well. Easy theatre to find just a leisurely five minute walk from Covent garden. Would highly recommend this production.

Only negative, if you don't want your children to hear... More

A rip-roaring fun musical - the best I have ever seen. Well worth seeing and not just for children. The costumes, sets and characterisations are all exceptional.

Matilda was fantastic - all of the cast members were brilliant and we kept having to remind ourselves just how young a lot of them were. I think the girl playing Matilda when we went was called Lollie - she was perfect! The set was cleverly designed and I can't think of a single thing to criticise.....well, apart from the... More

Showing at the Cambridge theatre, close to Cambridge Circus, off Shaftesbury Avenue, in the centre of theatre land and Covent Garden. Parking is virtually impossible unless you use one of the national car parks. Most of the car parks offer a special discount if you get your parking ticket/docket stamped by the theatre box office. The theatre is situated within... More
