Rejoice, my theatergoing comrades. The children’s revolution has arrived on these shores, and it is even more glorious than we were promised...the most satisfying and subversive musical ever to come out of Britain... 

- Ben Brantley, The New York Times
Once in a blue moon, a show comes out blazing and restores your faith in Broadway. “Matilda The Musical” is that show. For once, you can believe the hype. A treat for ears and eyes, brain and heart, the glorious “Matilda” has it all — plus lasers!

- Elisabeth Vincentelli, NY Post

“My Mummy says I’m a miracle!” sings the first child to appear onstage, in the opening number of Matilda: The Musical. He’s quickly joined by more kids, all singing about how their parents treat them like princes and angels and Daddy’s “special little guy.” The delicious irony, of course, is that they’re a bunch of brats, and Matilda, the precocious four-year-old who outshines them all, has been sentenced to the two most neglectful, self-absorbed parents on earth.
