Roald Dahl’s Matilda — Now Singing and Dancing!

Beloved by generations of children and Americanized in a film, Roald Dahl‘s valiant heroine Matilda is now belting it out on one of the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Stratford stages.  Officially opening tonight, the show has been a labor of love for many people among them Australian comic Tim Minchin who penned the lyrics and composed the music.  For more on the development of this project check out this Telegraph article and the following two trailers. The first is a general one while the second focuses on the development of the song, “When I Grow Up.”
