- Broadway can add yet another blockbuster to its roster of kid-friendly shows. 'Matilda,' based on Roald Dahl’s 1988 children’s novel, is wickeder than 'Wicked,' as beastly as the beasts in 'The Lion King' and as crowd-pleasing as anything on the Great White Way.

Based on the beloved novel by Roald Dahl, MATILDA continues to thrill audiences of all ages on Broadway, on National Tour and in London’s West End. The Wall Street Journal says, “The makers of MATILDA have done the impossible – triumphantly! It is smart, sweet, zany and stupendous fun.”
