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.

I went with my family to see Matilda and it was a fantastic night . The whole cast was great . I am in a wheelchair and we were met by Carrie who helped us to find our way around the theatre and to our seats. Carrie was wonderfull and so helpful it makes such a difference when people dont see the disability but just see the person who needs a little more help. Thankyou to the cast and Carrie for making it a magical evening. If you can go YOU MUST .

I was not the only one to find it difficult to understand what was being said or rather SHOUTED... One person complained in the interval so I hoped it would improve - it did not. Individual mic's generally ok, the TEACHER'S voice was 100%clarity. The headmistress' voice somewhat distorted when (he) shouted. The children (altogether) unrecognisable. Matilda's long solo piece very poor. Too loud? Poor diction? Not together? Sound system? My ears (& others ears)? Wrong seat area (c upper)? OR a mix of all of those??? Production would have been excellent otherwise.

The show was amazing! I did'nt want the show to end. it is a mind-blowing and breath-taking show which adults and children will love. Matilda will leave you starstruck ad you'll want to see it all over again. Matilda is a 5 star show. I would definatley recommend it. It is a super show.

My name is Amy and I came to see Matilda on the 23 rd of September. I am disabled and went with my friend Emma, who is also disabled, we also had two carers with us. When we arrived at the theatre, we were met by a lady called Michaela. Michaela, showed us to our seats, showing us where the disabled toilets were on the way. Michaela then made sure we were able to see the stage clearly, then offered to get us refreshments at the interval, so that we did not have to negotiate through the crowds. I ordered some goodies from the shop, and Michaela bought them to me, showing me what I was going to buy. At the interval Michaela brought a us our drinks quickly. I would like to say that I and Emma have been to London to see a lot of shows, but we have never had the high level of service that we received at The Cambridge Theatre. I would like to say a very big thank you to all the staff and especially to Michaela for making our visit a very memorable one.
