Straight from London, ‘Matilda’ has exceeded its high expections on Broadway since its opening on April 11. We all know and love the original 90s film about a young girl with magical powers who tries to escape her evil parents and headmistress.
The musical version of ‘Matilda’ joined the million-dollar club last week, earning $1,129,419 at the Broadway box office. ‘Matida’ has out-shined ‘Cinderella’ and ‘Annie’ which also recently opened as family musicals on Broadway.
‘Matilda’ is likely to be in the running for top musical at the Tony Awards this Spring.
