“Great Shows Kids loved it.”
Reviewed April 12, 2014

Went to the show with 4 adults and 5 children aged 5-10 and they all loved it. The music was great and the actors fantastic... The grumpy headmistress misses Trenchboll was horrible.... It's a great show for the kids and the parents alike.

“An amazing performance!”
Reviewed April 12, 2014

This was the first musical I had seen in the West End and what a great fantastic performance it was! All the characters were brilliant and Miss Trunchbull was definitely my favourite! Great fun and lots of funny scenes. A must see! This is my second favourite musical only beaten by Wicked!

“Quite good”
Reviewed April 11, 2014

I went to see the show with my mum last year as it had great reviews and we both loved the book. A lot of the songs were great and brilliant staging. My only criticism was the story Matilda told to Miss Honey and the librarian. It was not in the original book and we both thought it was a bit silly and the weakest part of the plot.

“Do get a ticket for this show”
Reviewed April 11, 2014

A fantastic musical - great cast, the girl playing Matilda at the performance we attended was a star as were the rest of the cast. Splendid set and the songs by Tim Minchin are amusing and clever.
I know tickets are hard to get however it is well worth it for a real wonderful musical. Even if you don't have children, go and see it, you wont be disappointed
