Matilda the musical is one of the best musical we have ever seen. The musical is much funnier than the film because Miss Trunchbull is really hilarious as she is played by a man! She is the funniest character in the whole musical because she rides on a scooter and says "MAGGOTS!" Matilda's parents are different because Mrs Wormwood dances with a Spanish man and her dad is a crook who sells illegal cars. We also get to see Miss Honey's parents and what happens to her mum and dad.
Near the end there are Russian Mafia people trying to look for Matilda's parents and Matilda can speak Russian so she can understand it. The Russian Mafia leader liked Matilda but when they found Matilda's parents, she shows a bit of kindness to her parents and requests that the Mafia let them go. Matilda's brother Michael isn't funny in the movie but he is in the musical. He doesn't talk much but in the middle of the musical Mr Wormwood sings a sing and Michael joins. Michael only says "Telly and BACKWARDS!!!!!"
The songs were amazing and toe-tapping. The whole play was so funny that we almost fell off our seats with laughter FANTASTIC!!!!!!
We would definitely see it again if we had the chance and would highly recommend anyone to see it. We give this musical a 10/10!
