(Charles Spencer’s article appeared in the Telegraph 12/10.)

I turned up to the RSC’s new musical version of Roald Dahl’s Matilda expecting a pretty classy children’s show. What I wasn’t anticipating was the best British musical since Billy Elliot and a smash hit that will surely be the toast of the West End once its run in Stratford is over.

Dahl was a terrific story teller and his Matilda, about a little girl with magical powers, horrible parents and an even more horrific head teacher, is highly entertaining.
