I went to watch Matilda the Musical a few weeks ago and I thought it was amazing. Lots of catchy music and the acting by Matilda was awesome. It was a really good expierience as I thought it was fun and worth watching

4.0 star rating Anonymous from London,


I really enjoyed this show. The performers were fantastic, especially the lead actress. The songs were catchy and very entertaining. Cambridge Theatre is a lovely venue, but I would recommend getting seats as close to the front as your budget allows. We were relatively far back and some of the dialogue was quite difficult to hear. I think the people at the back would have seriously struggled to hear everything, even though those seats were selling for £25- £30. Overall though, it was a great night out.

We went as a family to see the performance on New Years Day, my birthday. We thought it was perfect. Matilda was dazzling, quite remarkable that a 10 year old could capture the whole audience and hold it in the palm of her hands. Memorable songs, great crackling tension, a super-baddie and an all round attack on every sense. I didn't want it to end. We want to go again, very soon.

i was fortunate enough to attend the show on saturday 28th january, and i was impressed with everything about the show; the set was fantastic and very inventive as were the cast, and the young girl who played matilda will undoubtedly go on and become a huge star, she had such a charisma and stage presence. I wasn’t overly impressed with the theatre seating, we were sat in the upper circle and our seats moved if people sat forward on their seat, and I’m not too sure how fast an evacuation of the building could take place, in the event of an emergency. However I would recommend that if you are in London and want to watch a show that has a fantastic inventive set, humour, and a ‘10 out of 10 feel good factor bout it then this is the show for you

Saw this at the weekend and it was just brilliant. The children are amazing. Hayley Canham played matilda and she certainly stole the show, a very talented girl. Would highly recommend.

We saw Matilda in Stratford and were desperate to see it again so very pleased to get to see it in London. The energy of the cast was amazing from start to end, the music and lyrics brilliant and you MUST go and see it. Would be very surprised if it doesn't have a very long run, hope so, so we can get to see it again. If you only get to see one show this year make it MATILDA!!

What we thought

colourful Clever UNMISSABLE

Loud, colourful, and full of ridiculous expressions and playground jokes, from its set through to the dancing!

I'm afraid it's true, the kids are revolting - but don't be too alarmed, we mean 100% revolution and 0% revulsion. The school-aged portion of Matilda's cast are causing a revolution in musical theatre, singing and dancing their way to West End stardom...
