Time Magazine’s #1 Show of the Year! Broadway's Matilda The Musical, based on the beloved novel by the brilliantly batty Roald Dahl (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), is the story of an extraordinary girl who, armed with a sharp mind and a vivid imagination, dares to take a stand and change her destiny. Matilda is a genius who is born into a…less brilliant family. Her dad is a car salesman with a few scruples loose and her mum is an amateur ballroom dancer who values looks over books—not a great match for a girl who reads Dostoyevsky in the original Russian. But things only get worse when Matilda’s parents send her to school at the ghastly Crunchem Hall, where she meets the tyrannical head mistress, Miss Trunchbull. Faced with these ridiculously rotten circumstances, Matilda bravely decides to take action. With the help of her friends and her kind-hearted teacher, Miss Honey, this miraculous girl inspires a little revolution and proves that everyone has the power to change their story.

When Matilda opened in London’s West End, it won a record-breaking 7 Olivier Awards (including Best Musical)—more than any show in history! After receiving outstanding critical raves on Broadway, this thrilling show went on to win 50 international awards, including 4 Tony Awards®.
