I came to this show without any real knowledge of Matilda, having never read the book or seen the film. Even so, it was fantastic. The songs were really catchy, the stage design was brilliant and the actors were amazing. I can't recommend this show enough.

What an utterly stunning musical - from start to finish this gripped us, we laughed, cheered and enjoyed every second. Ms Trunchbold was superb and had us laughing on navy an occasion and the girl playing Matilda was spell binding. All characters were fully engaging and fantastic. This is a must see musical, we have been to see a lot... More

Took my friend's son for a special birthday treat, and while all the children were entranced, I swear the adults were every bit as enthralled. Hummable tunes, subversive lyrics, terrific villain and baddies and spunky heroine - all performed with style and zest, and ultra-dynamic choreography. Terrific brio, and a non-preachy morality tale from Mr Dahl's splendidly warped imagination. Kudos... More

This was my first experience of seeing a West End show and i was not disappointed! We were sat right at the back at the top and it was tricky to see, especially because i had some rude people in front of me who kept moving around! The show was amazing, very professionally put together and the songs were really... More

This show was amazing... More

The show has been running for over 5 years and is still fresh and fun. We had a great time in the cheap seats - upper circle. The acoustics are great and you can see everything. Lovely story and lovely show with fantastic actors.

Loved every minute of the performance! Funny, witty and some adult humour thrown it too. A real must see and when it's over leaves you wanting to see it again! Perfect for all ages and all the cast were amazing, especially the children.

This was a birthday treat for my 8 yo who adores the soundtrack (and Danny DeVito movie) but has not yet read the book although we have just started! The theatre is easy to find ten minutes from Covent Garden tube. There is a sweetie cart just outside which was very handy and an ice cream shop called Udderlicious ice... More

Whether you're headed here to check out the multitude of shops, theaters, cafes, pubs, and restaurants, or simply to be among the multitude of people who pass through this pretty part of town, you'll love soaking up the festive and historic atmosphere in and around Covent Garden. Even if you don't have tickets to the opera or a show at one of the many famous theaters here, don't be surprised if find yourself captivated by some impromptu act of a street performer wowing the crowds in Covent Garden's Piazza. If you do have tickets, you'll be pleased to note that many of the local eateries accommodate theatergoers with prix fixe menus, early dinners, and later than usual opening hours.
