On Tuesday my sister and I took a spontaneous trip to the theatre to see Matilda. My sister went to the theatre on hope that they would have some spare seats and they did! We only paid £25 for a ticket..... Bargain!! Considering the musical is sold out on online and only £80 tickets are left this was pretty lucky, even if we were on the back row at the very top! The theatre is quite small so the seating did not matter!
The musical was amazing and I would recommend it to everyone! It follows the book and film as closely as possible and the songs are very catchy. My favorite was 'When I grow Up' and 'Revolting Children'. The set was equally amazing with lots of props, colours and variety!
The little girl who played Matilda was absolutely fantastic, such a star. Whenever I watch musicals on the West End it makes me wish that I kept up dancing and was on the stage - although I cant sing so that would be interesting! The person who plays Mrs Trunchball is actually a man, and he is brilliant! Mr Trunchball is hilarious and reminded me a bit of Tim Minchin (who wrote the music and lyrics!).
If you ever fancy a trip to the theatre and have seen quite a few of the musicals and don't know what to see I would most definitely recommend Matilda. It is perfect for the family. When I was in the toilet's there were two little girls about 6 in the front of me in the queue. One girl asked the other if she liked it and the girl replied 'I don't like it, I love it!' I think that is the best way to sum the musical up!!
