Matilda The Musical celebrates 5 years in West End!

West End Matilda wins Evening Standard Drama award for Best New Musical!

The RSC’s production of MATILDA THE MUSICAL has celebrated over 5 years in the West End, with music and lyrics by Tim Minchin and featuring magic effects by Paul Kieve.

“The best pieces of musical theatre come from great collaborations – the right people being in the right place at the right time – with each ingredient complementing the other. Composer/lyricist Tim Minchin, librettist Dennis Kelly, director Matthew Warchus, choreographer Peter Darling, . designer Rob Howell and illusionist Paul Kieve have done more than preserved the spirit and mischievousness of Roald Dahl’s classic tale – they have created a fresh and intelligent family entertainment that brings joy to both adults and children”  The Stage, Nov 25 2011
