Katie and Flick went to Stratford Upon Avon to attend the press night of the adaptation of Roald Dahl’s Matilda. Tim Minchin has written the music and lyrics, and the production has been adapted by writer Dennis Kelly. The show has opened to critical acclaim with five stars in The Times and The Telegraph and four stars in the Guardian. To quote Charles Spencer’s review in The Daily Telegraph “The songs fizz with humour and great take-home melodies. Kelly and Minchin suddenly look like the brightest prospects for British musical theatre since Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice”.
