You guys, this was so much fun! Despite any flaws it may have I left the theater happy and giddy and wanting to see it again. I might have already emailed my sister (who is a set designer) that we have to go see it again just so we can dissect the set and all the pieces.
The set was AMAZING and all the friggin Tonys for it. For reals. Bravo. Can you like…design my future apartment to work in the same way? Thanks.
All the kids were SO lovely and talented and amazing. The Trunchbull was HILARIOUS. At one point I thought to myself “I know she’s the bad guy, but I love her.”
The music was just perfect and worked so wonderfully with the story. Really, just go see it. You won’t regret it. Now off I go to re-read Matilda.
