This is an amazing production. Excellent use of scenery, lighting, music and talent! We've seen dozens of musicals, this has to be in the top three ever.

For my daughters first ever visit to a west end show, it was amazing, we loved Matilda, had everything in the film in the show with a twist as shows are meant to! I'd recommend anyone with children and adults alike to go and watch the show! We were at the very back bar one row and could still see... More

My two daughters (9&5) and I absolutely loved this show. It has some amazing effects and the actors were great. We never got bored at any point, the show is a little different to the book and movie, but still, absolutely amazing. Yes, there are some loud bangs but nothing my children couldn't handle. Will definitely recommend.

We attended Matilda the Musical on Tuesday evening at Cambridge theatre. We all loved every second of it, more so than expected. The casting was incredible, each and every part. I was unsure how the sort of the film would transfer to a musical however loved this more than the movie. Definitely one of my favourite musicals - 5*

Brilliant musical- amazing, extra-ordinary, inspiring, awesome! Our children (aged 10 and 8) loved this- every minute. We don't think it would be suitable for smaller children (under the age of 6) who would find it scary. Amazing stage and backdrops and inspiring little actors.

First impressions were great, the scenery looked amazing and the stage was set. unfortunately I was a bit disappointed in the show. I cant fault the children one bit, especially the girl who played Matilda, they were all fantastic. I was however a bit put off by the adult actors. The Trunchbull, played by a man, came across a little... More

So firstly the children in Matilda are fantastic as are the adults. The way the Trunchball is portrayed is hilarious! The girl we saw play Matilda is so talented. The songs were good and the dancing was great, we especially liked the swing song and dance and the one at the school gates. The stage was also brilliant. A lot... More
