2013 Tony Award Show Clips: Matilda
Saw this show at Keller Auditorium last night. Great fun! Because it is a musical there was a bunch of singing and because my ears are not in tune with the singers voices, much of it was incomprehensible. No matter, the story came through as well as all the jokes. Mr. & Mrs. Wormwood (Matilda's parents) and Miss Trunchbull (her teacher) were done as caricatures, and it would be hard to find worse people to be in charge of kids.
Some people were impressed with the lyrics from the songmeister, Tim Minchin. You can listen to the songs and read the lyrics on YouTube, or read the lyrics as text and listen to advertising here.
