Roald Dahl's Matilda: The Musical Coming To Shanghai This December

Jul 5, 2019 | 15:23 Fri
Ooooooh this one's going to be good. The Royal Shakespeare Company's award-winning musical Matilda based on the classic children's book by Roald Dahl is coming to the Shanghai Culture Square. It tells the story of a bright and curious young girl who loves books, as she deals with a shallow, cruel family, and a tyrannical school principal. Spoilers, turns out she's telekinetic. She's like the PG version of Eleven from Stranger Things! Debuting in 2010, it holds the record for most Olivier awards for a musical and has toured internationally. It's kind of a big deal.

With book by Dennis Kelly and songs by the excellent Tim Minchin, it is a stand-out of the genre and you might have some Mrs D, Mrs I, Mrs FFI, Mrs C, Mrs U, Mrs LTY! (that spells "difficulty") getting tickets. Luckily, tickets to Matilda: The Musical just became available on SmartTicket. They start at 280rmb.
