"Feeling put down and bossed around? Your special qualities going unrecognized? Want to set things right? Well, then you’ll likely relate to the title character of this award-magnet (Tony, Drama Desk, Olivier, etc.) musical, based on a story by the twistedly whimsical Roald Dahl. Villainous authority is met with precocious intelligence, kindness, and a touch of telekinesis." - Oregon Arts Watch
Music and lyrics by Tim Minchin. Book by Dennis Kelly. Based on the book Matilda by Roald Dahl.
The much-loved story by Roald Dahl bursts into musical life on the stage! This new musical originated in London’s West End in 2011 and features an unforgettable soundtrack by musical comedian Tim Minchin. Matilda, a precocious young bookworm, uses her strange powers of telekinesis to overcome obstacles and makes friends along the way. Winner of seven Olivier Awards and five Tony Awards.
