Based on Roald Dahl’s classic children’s book, this full-length Tony Award-winning Broadway musical follows Matilda Wormwood, a precocious – and powerful – girl who immerses herself in books. Unfortunately, Matilda’s parents don’t understand why she’d rather read than watch television. Even worse, the headmistress at her school, Miss Trunchbull, a wicked and outrageous beast of a woman, intends to make Matilda’s life miserable. Matilda uses the magical powers she discovers within herself to create a better life for both her and her loving protector and teacher, Miss Honey.
A note on content in the show: This production is the Broadway version of Roald Dahl’s Matilda the Musical. At one point in the story Mrs. Wormwood says, “Oh, bloody hell” in response to a comment from the Doctor. In some scenes, Matilda and other children experience insults and bullying language from some of the adults.
