Latest Review: "The musical was amazing..."

Age Restriction: Suitable for ages 6 and over.

Ever since it was first seen in Stratford-upon-Avon in 2010 it has been celebrated as one of the best new musicals of the decade, a status that was cemented when this West End production opened in 2011, and audiences can still catch Matilda The Musical at the Cambridge Theatre.

This is an unrivalled opportunity to witness something that has been wowing audiences wherever it goes, from its current West End home to its appearances on Broadway, it has demonstrated enormous talent from its creators – from musician Tim Minchin to writer Dennis Kelly and director Matthew Warchus.

Roald Dahl’s Matilda tells the story of the title character – a girl that has been bestowed with extraordinary intellect from an early age. Having read all of the books in her house before the age of 5 she proceeds to the local library and reads all the children’s books there, before moving on to school where her intellect continues to give her advantages and disadvantages. Then she happens upon another gift – psychokinetic powers – which she is able to use to punish all of those that deserve it.

Many well known names have been a part of the cast since it emerged on the theatre scene and they have ensured that performers have had plenty of experience to bring to the table, whilst also attracting eager theatregoers. This is also likely to be something that continues throughout its run. After all, with a reputation like this, performers from across the capital will be wanting a look-in.

London theatre audiences will also get to experience the celebrated music from comedian Tim Minchin, which has contributed to the show’s worldwide reputation as one of the best musicals to emerge from the UK in many years. Minchin is known for his appearances in television shows like Californication and Never Mind The Buzzcocks, as well as his live shows such as Ready For This. So audiences know they are in for something special with the music he has created for the show.

Audiences can still catch Matilda The Musical at the Cambridge Theatre in London’s West End, where it continues to make a big impression on theatregoers.
