The hit musical adaptation of Roald Dahl’s Matilda is currently running on Broadway at The Shubert Theatre. The show, which was first staged and is still running in London, features a book by Dennis Kelly and music and lyrics by Tim Minchin.
Matilda is the story of an extraordinary young girl whose voracious reading habits help her to dream of a better life - as her current life is full of bullies and disregard for her well being - starting from the moment she’s born when her mother, Mrs. Wormwood played by Lesli Margherita, declares: "This the worst day of my life!"
