Let me just start off by saying that when they first announced that Matilda was coming to Broadway a couple of years ago I really had no desire what so ever to see it. It just sounded like another children's show like Billy Elliot that was a big hit in London. In fact I waited three whole years before I finally got around to seeing that one and much to my surprise I actually enjoyed it. That didn't mean that I would enjoy Matilda. Besides it looked a little too British for me for my tastes. Of course I said the same thing about Billy Elliot too and I was wrong about that one too. Therefore instead of waiting another three years like I did with Billy Elliot I decided just to give in and see what all the hype was about. Of course seeing it for free was nice too.
So there I sat in the third row of the Balcony on a Saturday night waiting for the show to begin. Oh and did I mention that I was surrounded by a bunch of kids too? I was afraid this was about to be a long night. Now I am man enough to admit when I am wrong and boy was I wrong about Matilda. It is truly an amazing show. In fact I would go as far to put it in my top ten or fifteen shows that I have seen over the years. It was that good. Now for those of you who still haven't seen it I have some exciting news. You can now get tickets to see Matilda for some incredible prices. Be advised that while this "Special Offer" is good thru July 6 is for select performances and as always subject to availability. Get your tickets to see Matilda on Broadway at the Shubert Theatre. You will love it.
