Seen this show three times now (once with school, once with a friend and one with family), each time I have been I have loved it and thought it was excellent! Everyone I've been with (school, family, etc) at the show really enjoyed it and only had great things to say about it. Been in the stalls (row C) and in the upper circle, the stalls are definitely worth that extra bit of money (although it can get loud down there near the front as you're close).

I would recommend this to both Children and Adults, as each time I've been both kids and adults seemed to of loved it! I'm 17 and a guy, and I would happily go again one day!

My best friend Cristina Fray was Matilda.

Cristina is the most shy girl i have ever know but when she performed on the coven gardens stage, she was full of herself she was powerful and loud. she looked like she was enjoying herself so much. (i know i did watching her) i have always wanted that role i was so jealous.

Excellent amazing show. Staff very friendly, and as a wheelchair user I do not think I have ever been so well looked after as I have today by Michaela. Thanks for a great experience. .

Matilda the musical is amazing filled with humor and catchy songs . If you haven't seen it , go see it , you maggots ( the word maggots is used in the musical , don't take offence ! ) The musical is suitable for all ages and is perfect for a reward , treat or a surprise ! Enjoy the musical if you do go if not and you are just reading it , then what some clips on YouTube ! I am Zoe and I am 12 years old , thanks for reading ! Xxx

Matilda was amazing, i would love to go and see it again, i loved the hair spinning it was amazing, and the lights and technical work was fabulous and a bright idea to bring out the desks from the trap doors below, it was all smooth and perfection!

5 stars all the way or more if i can give more.

I went to see Matilda with my class, on the 21st of March and we had come all the way from Wolverhampton just to see this brilliant show.All of my class mates said they wanted to go and see it again after the show was finished. I would recommend Matilda for any age and I would like to thank my teachers for taking us on a very good show.

We went to Matilda yesterday and had a FANTASTIC time - the cast were superb. My husband is in a wheelchair and was so well looked after by a very friendly and helpful assistant, Michaela - please thank her very much for the great service.

We saw Matilda last year on my Son's 9th Birthday. The little girl in the lead role was not one of the four that had won the Oliver Award, so we were a bit disappointed. However, she was absolutely AMAZING!! She was word perfect and so professional. Bertie Carvel as Miss Trunchbull was one of the funniest characters I have seen on a stage. My 12 year old Daughter is begging to go again.
