My family has always loved musicals, so our first trip to New York wouldn’t be complete without seeing a show on Broadway. Matilda the Musical was the second show we went to, and it was one of my favourites. Aussie Tim Minchin has done a fantastic job with Matilda the Musical, with some laugh-out-loud lyrics and songs that stick in your head for days.
I don’t remember ever reading Matilda, so I think all my knowledge comes from the 1996 movie. But, after seeing this beautiful cover pictured above at the merchandise stand, I had to grab a copy for myself.
