“Magical!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

I went to see Matilda in April with a friend. This was the fourth musical I had seen in London and was one of the best. The acting was superb with excellent singing and good humour. It was faithful to the original story while at the same time it made a few appropriate adjustments to make to more stage suitable. An excellent choice for the whole family!

“Worth it - do it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

I took my daughter who is currently a big Roald Dahl fan to Matilda and we both really enjoyed. The set, performers and staging were great. It's in a lovely theatre and I recommend preordering your intermission drinks and snacks from the bar which was well organised.

“Absolutely Fabulous!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

I had never heard of this musical until we were in London and tickets became available. My husband had no desire to attend, but I forced him to go and we were enthralled. I'm smiling right now just remembering the music and superb acting - what a cast of young folks and more seasoned actors. WOW! If you have a chance, go! We loved every minute of the performance.

“Matilda Rocks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Got excellent seats - 4th stall - directly from Cambridge theatre since everywhere was sold out. Matilda is a must see when in London - the child actors were excellent but the adults especially Ms. Trunbull was extraordinary! The area near the theatre is the most fun in all of London - GO NOW!
