Recently, I was fortunate enough to see Matilda the Musical, a recently launched West End musical which has received glowing reviews and broken records while winning awards. Tim Minchin, credited with the music and lyrics, has been both featured and mentioned on this blog before and only performed in Cambridge back in November 2010. Naturally, I was expecting Matilda the Musical to be good, but I was still surprised and impressed by it, and think it has the potential to become a long-running classic.
Below, I leave you with a single but representative example. I strongly recommend that you go and see the real thing if you have a chance! Naturally, the soundtrack is available for purchase if you enjoy the songs.
