I'm not the most ardent theatre goer, I have to admit.
But this show was absolutely brilliant.
Great treat for adults and children alike, a must see.

It is amazing how they put together this musical show, specially considering the main characters are children.
We enjoyed it enormously in spite of the theater being VERY hot due to a unseasonable 32º temperature in London ... a better a/c is recommended since they are not believing in the climate change as yet...

Just kidding. But as an early-20s couple this really didn't do it for us. Seemed like a kids' story through and through with nothing much for the adults. Even though we both enjoyed the movie, something was lost (maybe it was the lack of Danny De Vito).

A must see. The children are fab and Miss Trunchbull is fabulously funny.

The theatre is a bit tired compared to others but this shouldn't but you off going.

As a frequent theatre go-er, Matilda was fine. Probably better the younger you are. Not up there with the Lion King but the acting was good and the young Matilda was good. 6/10 for me. Theatre however was VERY hot which didn't add to the performance!
