I am going with my daughter to see Matilda, the musical tomorrow, the RSC production which has rave reviews, has anyone seen it ?
Really looking forward to it and a nice day out together in London. I will let you know.....

I took my Godddaughter, it is fabulous, tremendous fun, let me know how you got on. It was one of the best things I saw last year.

Yes GoldenGran, I agree it was fabulous! Noisy, hectic, so much fun and the dancing and singing very lively and impressive. Matilda was a delight, as were all the actors.
The adults in the audience seemed to enjoy it all as much as the children.

My DD is a great fan of Tim Minchin and thought the production would be good, seems she was right GG and MaggieP

Ooooh, we are going on Feb 18th (Christmas present from DD)!! Very much looking forward to it as I have heard it is GREAT from a friend who was quick off the mark last year and took her GD to see it at Stratford.
All reviews have been good and I feel it will establish itself as a children's classic like Wind in the Willows did at the National some years ago. (I have no compunctions about going to it WITHOUT small children!)

Quite right, my daughter is almost 32 and there were plenty Of other older ones too!

So good to see Matilda won 7 Olivier Awards last night, well deserved.
