Matilda Tickets - "A captivating musical masterpiece"
Matilda is Londons record-breaking musical, with book by Dennis Kelly and original
songs by Tim Minchin.
Matilda the awesome hit musical produced by the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC)
has won a total of 24 awards for the London production including a record-breaking
seven Olivier Awards, with their total trophy cabinet now containing 47 international
awards. The musical has been adapted for stage from Roald Dahls awesome story about
a gifted child with an extraordinary imagination. She loves reading and we, it seems,
are set to fall in love with her!
The story which many of us would have been in love with during our childhood years
has been, if nothing else, keenly tuned up for the musical on stage by Dennis Kelly
(author of the musical version). The original creative team behind the musical for
RSC is regrouping to present it at the London West End too. Matthew Warchus (Director),
Tim Minchin (music and lyrics), Peter Darling (Choreography), Rob Howell (Design)
and Paul Kieve (Illusions and special effects) have scored a golden goal with the
production of Matilda The Musical. If Matilda tickets are as hit as the creative
team is promising, we can be in for a roller coaster ride at the Cambridge Theatre!
Before its launch by the RSC, critics were skeptical of the concept because as such,
most of the musicals that have been adapted from already hit movies (e.g. Spiderman:
Turn of the Dark & Lord of The Rings) are not able to perform very well on stage,
but Matilda the Musical has already proved its mettle. In fact it is the over whelming
response that the musical received at the Courtyard theatre that has pushed it into
the London Theatreland. Matilda the musical has won the 2010 Critics Circle Theatre
Award for the Best Musical and here is what some of them had to say about the much
anticipated production in the West End.
