BWW Review: Magical MATILDA: THE MUSICAL at PPAC
by Andria Tieman - May 19, 2017

Adapting a beloved children's classic to Broadway is so fraught with landmines that it's a wonder people even attempt it since it seems like there's no way to possibly make something as fantastic as the original.  Good thing Denis Kelly (Book) and Tim Minchin (Music & Lyrics) are braver and more creative than most because they managed to create something that is both brand new and also incredibly faithful to the original.  Roald Dahl, author of the book Matilda, has such a unique voice and bizarre ways to torture the children in his stories, usually by placing them at the mercy of moronic adults that one worries anything based on his work coming out post 2010 would be sanitized and inoffensive to the point of being a pale shadow of the original.  Well, MATILDA: THE MUSICAL has all the pigtail tossing and forced feeding one requires from the Matilda story, along with some fantastically cheeky songs, and excellent performances all around.

BWW CD Review: GROUNDHOG DAY THE MUSICAL (Original Broadway Cast Recording) is Charmingly Animated
