I didn't like the story because it was boring. I think that they could change the story a little bit because it is same as the movie. I totally didn't like that the musical is same as the movie because I think that any musicals should change the original story a little bit.
The music and lyrics are great. I think in a musical every song is supposed to move the plot along, and tell you something about the story. The songs didn't always do that. Many are about people that don't matter that much. Matilda has two great songs. They are When I Grow Up and Revolting Children. They have a great messages.
The cast is amazing. The children are so good. I've never seen any shows that are ruled by children. (The adults are not bad either!)
I can say only one thing..... The set is so awesome!!!!
I give 3 escapes for my review.
