We loved this! Probably one of the best productions we have ever seen. We had seen Matilda in Melbourne, Australia previously (which we enjoyed) but the London production was even better. This is an absolute must see, and very suitable for school aged children as...More

Firstly I will start with saying the review underneath mine is mental!! I was at the same performance, and to say the audience seemed flat and there was no laughter is a genuine lie. Any way, After a hectic journey into London and feeling pretty...More

I was bitterly disappointed by our Wednesday matinee show. I loved the book and movie, and am ordinarily a huge Tim Minchin fan. However, the stage production in no way lived up to the hype. You could tell I was not alone in the theater,...More

I have wanted to see Matilda since it came out and finally got reasonably priced tickets for the Saturday matinee. We were sat on the back row of the first tier. The speakers weren't that loud as we could hear the children in the audience...More

My daughter is 17 and she really enjoyed the show. She has an interest in Musical Theater which helps. However I feel anyone would enjoy this show it has humor and great songs for all to enjoy

Should appreciate their action, gymnastic ability of the children and teens in show. Lighting and sound dramatic and enthralling. A street wise 17 yr old may find it un cool. Family 17 yr old will enjoy it.
