Matilda the Musical (Review)
After seeing Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Aladdin already this year, I wasn't expecting to see another London West End Musical anytime soon but when my mum came for a visit to London she had another plan. I wasn't to complain!
here to buy tickets to Matilda the Musical and here to watch the trailer.
I don't know if my expectations were super low or if really was an incredible show, but I was quite honestly blown away.
Speaking of the film, there are some very iconic scenes. One being when the young pigtailed girl is swung and flung out of the school. I loved that they incorporated that into the performance and I still have absolutely no idea how the girl dropped from the ceiling in the middle of the audience and a real girl appeared in his hands. I was whooping with joy along with the rest of the audience. My favourite scene is probably the scenes at Miss Trunchbull's house, especially the floating chocolate scene. I was a little disappointed that they didn't include that scene in the performance but with the addition of an extra scene, it would have mean more costly and time constraints probably don't allow. I was pleased that they had the chalk writing on the board though.
It was truly a hilarious, moving and magical production of Matilda.The transformation to the theatre version has deepened the original story and the script explores the undiscovered joy, humour and tenderness within.
