About this show

Based on Roald Dahl's classic children's book, Matilda the Musical is a full-length Tony Award-winning Broadway musical that 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.
