Delightful musical, in an intimate West End theatre. The music, dance and set all work togeather. Entertaining and maybe a little scary for younger kids. Nicely done and the plot lot thought a child's dark fantasy works

Came last minute after getting some late tickets from TKTS in Leicester Square, so got an OK deal. The bar area was a bit cramped and there wasn't anywhere you could sit and have a drink before the show. We just went to our seats...More

Matilda the Musical is one of those performances that make you stop eating your snacks just so you can take everything the show has to offer in. The energy from every one of the cast members as well as the extremely professional and impressive performance...More

We are fans of of the book and Danny DeVito movie, and we loved the musical. We agree that Matilda was hard to understand but it didn't diminish the performance much. Bruce was great and Miss Trunchbull was almost endearing (could have watched her all...More

We recently went to see Matilda. We had a box which made it a little more special. The view from the box was fabulous. The show is great and quite funny. A nice theatre and a good night out

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

It will depend on what the actors are doing between shows. They won't be obliged to do autographs although I'm sure they would if they're around. But definitely not any of the child performers - they're not allowed to... More
