“Musical Magic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

An amazing musical experience at the Cambridge Theatre.
The theatre itself is rather quaint with some art deco touches.
However, it was Matilda we were there to see and it is a truly sensational show, with great performances all round, appealing music and the whole audience were spellbound.
Take you own sweets/snacks though as VERY expensive inside the theatre.

“great if you're with kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

the acting is superb the story line a bit silly for me yet wonderful for children or adults who love a musical with lots of costume changes,vibrant music and some plot . almost sold out daily so book in advance or go same day at 10am as they usually release tickets for sale last minute

“ABSOLUTELY AMAZING”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

Im not a fan of musicals at all and was kindof dreading this, i had purchased tickets for the wife as she is a massive Tim Minchin fan as well as a lover of Roald Dahls stories.

First of the set is simply amazing, one of the best put tother i have ever seen, it flows so fluidly with the story you often forget you are at the theatre and think you are in a cinema!

The music is great and is very clearly Tim Minchin with the lilt and rhythm that he puts to all of his music.

The adult cast are extremely tight, extremely impressive but....

......the clear stars of the show are the kids. Absolutely awesome, god knows how they have enough energy to go to school as well as do the show in the evening, they are as in time and professional as the adults and play their parts fantastically well.

All in all its a show simply not to be missed.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

This is the most amazing musical I have ever seen! The music is incredible and so is the acting, I have no idea how anyone could rate this under 4 stars! It is great for all the family including the adults!
