383 – Matilda the Musical

Listen on the players above, Apple Podcasts, Audible, Google Podcasts, or Spotify.

The stage musical adaptation of Roald Dahl’s 1988 novel, Matilda, about a young girl with hyperintelligence, telekinetic powers, uncaring parents and a terrifying headmistress, premiered in 2010 and has gone on to achieve enormous popularity, as well as seven Olivier Awards and five Tonys. This cinematic adaptation features the same music and the same director as the stage version, but does it have the same magic?

With José Arroyo of First Impressions and Michael Glass of Writing About Film.
