Now I'll admit that I was not looking forward to seeing Matilda The Musical. Yet there I was last Saturday night in the Balcony of the Shubert Theatre. In fact if the ticket hadn't been free chances are I would probably never get around to ever seeing it. For any of you who have read my previous blogs know that big budget shows like Matilda are just not my cup of tea. Plus the fact that the show has so much hype behind it made me want to see it even less. That is why I never saw The Producers and was why it took me years to see Jersey Boys or Billy Elliot.
Now of course when I finally got around to seeing those shows I regretted waiting so long. Who knows? Maybe I would end up liking Matilda. Stranger things have happened. Well as it turns out I loved it. Although if I'm being really honest I will say that I didn't like it at first. In fact I actually started to fall asleep during the first fifteen or twenty minutes. Then something happened. Or should I say someone happened. As soon as Miss Trunchbull appeared I was hooked.
From that moment on something happened and by the end of the evening I knew that I was witness to one of the greatest shows that Broadway has ever seen. Pretty big statement from someone who didn't want to see it in the first place. I even told my coworker that seeing Matilda had reaffirmed my belief in Broadway. I mean if a show like Matilda can't make it then there is no hope for the future of Broadway. Of course we all know that it's going to be a huge hit. There is no denying that. Now how many Tony Awards it wins this year is a different story.
Oh sure it will win a few. However there is still a few more weeks until the Tony deadline and there are still quite a few more shows to open before then. At this point it's anybody's ball game. By the way for those of you looking to purchase tickets to see Matilda you have come to the right place. Not only do we sell tickets to this show but every show both On and Off Broadway. Get your tickets to see Matilda The Musical on Broadway. You will love it.
