Royal Shakespeare Company to Team with The Dodgers for Broadway's Matilda the Musical logo
The Royal Shakespeare Company has announced that the Dodgers will be its producing partner for the previously reported Broadway production of Roald Dahl's Matilda The Musical, to open in the Spring of 2013.

Directed by Matthew Warchus and featuring a book by Dennis Kelly and music and lyrics by Tim Minchin, the show centers on a little girl with astonishing wit, intelligence and psychokinetic powers.

The production, which premiered at The Courtyard Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon, home of the RSC, is currently playing a West End engagement at the Cambridge Theatre. It is designed by Rob Howell, and has choreography by Peter Darling, orchestrations, additional music and musical supervision by Christopher Nightingale, lighting by Hugh Vanstone, sound by Simon Baker and special effects and illusions are by Paul Kieve.

The Dodgers are currently represented on Broadway by the Tony, Olivier and Grammy Award-winning Jersey Boys at the August Wilson Theatre, and the new production of Jesus Christ Superstar at the Neil Simon Theatre. Over the past 30 years, Dodger productions have been seen on Broadway, Off-Broadway, on US National Tour, on London's West End and around the world, receiving more than 50 Tony Awards.

Further production information about the New York production of Matilda The Musical will be announced in the near future.
