Matilda the Musical Heads to Broadway

Next year, Britain’s Royal Shakespeare Company will bring Matilda the Musical to Broadway in New York City. According to United Press International, the UK production of the musical “continues to play to sold-out houses.”

Here’s more from UK production’s official site: “Roald Dahl’s much-loved story bursts into life on stage in this brand new musical version by Dennis Kelly and award-winning musician and comedian Tim Minchin. Children and adults alike will be thrilled and delighted by the story of the special little girl with an extraordinary imagination.”

We’ve embedded the show’s trailer above. Dahl published Matilda in 1988 and Quentin Blake illustrated the novel. Since its release, Matilda has spawned a 1996 movie adaptation and a two-part BBC Radio special. Which actress would you cast as the telekinetic genius heroine?
