Matilda is just a fun happy musical that you can enjoy with young and old. The story line is comedic. The music and dancing are mesmerizing

Great show that sticks to this interesting story. We sort of thought it might flake off wildly considering it’s a stage show, but they do a very good job of making it accurate and very entertaining at the same time.

I hate musicals. I can't stand them. I only went because my wife wanted to go. And you know what? I bloody loved it. A fantastic, entertaining night out. Great cast, great sets and a lovely old theatre.

I have been attending Broadway shows for 30 years. This is the WORST show I have ever attended. Couldn't wait for intermission to leave.

This was a fun Broadway show. The props were great and the tunes were catchy. Children would absolutely love this, but personally I didn't think the performers were as good as I have seen in other musicals.

Tried it for Matilda and I even thought if we did it New Year's Eve, it might work, but not this time. This was at The Kennedy Ctr, in DC. Great show, though, and worth the price.
