"Winner of four 2013 Tony Awards, including Best Book of a Musical"
A literary classic becomes the next big thing on the Great White Way when Matilda: The Musical hits New York! Based on the enduring children’s novel by Roald Dahl (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), Matilda is the tale of an extraordinary little girl coming from a bad beginning. We’ll meet her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Wormwood, who would rather have their daughter watch television than reading books. Matilda’s teacher Miss Honey wants to put her in advanced classes, but the diabolical headmistress and Olympic hammer thrower Miss Trunchbull is more concerned with following her credo -- “to teach the child, we must first break the child” -- than teaching kids how to spell. Despite all the setbacks, Matilda and her fellow students persevere through hardships with the help of Miss Honey for an astonishing tale about honesty, integrity, and knowledge.
