    Writer Dennis Kelly and composer and lyricist Tim Minchin go to the top of the class with this anarchically joyous, gleefully nasty and ingenious musical adaptation of Roald Dahl's story."
    The Guardian

    Matthew Warchus's colourful riot of a production achieves an even dizzier balance between gleeful, grotesque, fun and heart-tugging poignancy, brilliantly drilled dynamism and warm, unforced charm."
    The Independent

    Evening Standard

    A moving and subtle spectacle which will have kids in stitches and adults in tears. It is guaranteed to delight anyone who's ever been a child. I can't wait to see it again."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from incredible I went with my partner and 9 year old son - we had tickets in the grand circle something like central row C :View was fine -great value for money! The show was awesome - the words, the music - (the lyrics were so clever) - the choreography and staging was brilliant. We saw Charlie and the chocolate factory about a year before and loved it - I would say that Matilda trumped it ! My 9 year old boy was mesmerised and bowled over by the acting, especially of Matilda - Fantastic for adults and kids

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best musical I have seen. I took my daughter (named Matilda- no prizes for guessing my favourite Roald Dahl book!) to see this as an end of summer treat. We were spellbound from the first second. It's a fast paced, innovative and thoroughly entertaining musical that will appeal to all. The actors and actresses, young and old, were superb.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Fantastic, can't rate it highly enough! Absolutely Fantastic, can't rate it highly enough! Had front row seats so that was a bonus, but great small theatre, fab actors, stage , setting and props were top notch. Lots of laughs, great adaptation of the book. My daughter loved the songs, so we had to buy the DVD, really great show, would go again tomorrow

Rated 4 out of 5 by from High quality performance Matilda is a show of great quality. It is well adapted from the book and different from the film version. The comedians are excellent. The show is maybe less entertaining than Charlie where the special effects and songs are better.
