Each day, the Bbox team trolls YouTube for the hot clip—sometimes it's a brand-new moment and sometimes it's a throwback to an oldie but goodie. No matter what praise hands are shot up, pearls are clutched and the repeat button is hit.
"When I Grow Up"/"Naughty" (UK Cast, Matilda)
Ulterior Motives: September 13 is Roald Dahl Day; so what better way to celebrate than with this uplifting Matilda showstopper?
Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: IMHO, this has to be the best song in the Matilda score. It's so touching and then the big moment comes and you're done. It's hard to think of another moment on Broadway right now that brings you as much joy in the theatre as the flying sequence at 1:55.
