The Miracle of MATILDA: Revisit the Show's Most Picture-Perfect Poses in Its Final Months!

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.

Featuring music and lyrics by Tim Minchin and a book by Dennis Kelly, Matilda has become a beloved musical for people of all ages. Based on Roald Dahl's beloved book, Matilda was first adapted into a wonderful 1996 movie starring Danny DeVito, Mara Wilson and Rhea Perlman. The story has been beloved by generations and adapting it into a musical only increased its popularity.

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. Dreaming of a better life for herself, she dares to take a stand against these oppressive forces and takes her destiny into her own hands. 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.
