Wonderful!

Having seen the movie, "Matilda", we wondered how this would compare. The little girl playing Matilda was wonderful and the principal, Trunchbull, played the part perfectly. There were a few parts that might scare real young children, but nothing that would be traumatic. Not being familiar with London playhouses, we weren't sure what to expect, but were pleasantly surprised at our seating and loved the way the stage was set up. I would definitely recommend this play for all.

Actors especially the children were amazing as was the set. However the show was very loud and in your face and only followed the Roald Dahl book very loosely. I was quite disappointed. Would not recommend it to others.
