Review On ROALD DAHL'S MATILDA THE MUSICAL


Tin Pan L.A.

Registered Critic


This British import plays like a delicious British cake—it's chock full of hilarious physical comedy, witty and charming songs, and storytelling that so perfectly from the across the pond. What's surprising about the musical is how much of the film and novel the stage version is actually able to accomplish on stage. You get all the iconic moments from the film with added songs and dancing that only heighten all the action.
