The Miracle of MATILDA: Revolting Around the World!

Come January 2017, the miracle that has been MATILDA on Broadway will play its final performance at the Shubert Theatre, after a whopping 37 previews and 1,555 regular performances. Opening on April 11, 2013, Matilda quickly swept Broadway off its feet with a story of heart, courage and loving who you are.

Matilda tells the story of an extraordinary girl, Matilda, with a vivid imagination and a sharp mind whose talents are constantly belittled by her cruel parents and headmistress.

The hit musical first made its appearance in London's West End. The original London production won a record-breaking 7 Olivier Awards including Best Musical. On Broadway, Matilda was nominated for 13 Tony Awards in 2013. It went onto earn Tony Awards for Best Lighting Design, Best Book and Best Featured Actor in a Musical for Gabriel Ebert.
