As previously reported, GMG Theatrical Productions, together with GWB Entertainment and Virtus Live, are bringing The Royal Shakespeare Company’s (RSC) production of Matilda the Musical to The Theatre at Solaire, its next show after the international touring production of “Cats“, currently running until December 1. The show opens on March 5, 2020.
The stage adaptation of the Roald Dahl classic was originally produced for the stage by the Royal Shakespeare Company. With book by Dennis Kelly and original songs by Tim Minchin, Matilda The Musical is the story of an extraordinary little girl who, armed with a vivid imagination and a sharp mind, dares to take a stand and change her own destiny. Winner of over 85 international awards, including 16 for Best Musical, Matilda The Musical is now in its seventh year in London.
The production has sets and costumes by Tony Award winner Rob Howell, with choreography by Peter Darling, orchestrations, additional music and musical supervision by Christopher Nightingale, lighting by Tony Award winner Hugh Vanstone, and sound by Simon Baker.
The show was commissioned by the RSC in 2010, and is the recipient of seven 2012 Olivier Awards including Best Musical and a joint Best Actress Award for the four young actresses who shared the title role. Based on the beloved story by the Roald Dahl (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Fantastic Mr. Fox), Matilda the Musical is directed by Tony Award winner Matthew Warchus.
