As part of our countdown to spring, Mike, Tim, and I will be sharing the events in concerts, sports, and theater that we’re most looking forward to this season. Let’s kick it off with theater.
||Matilda the Musical
|Where it’s playing:
||Shubert Theatre, New York, NY
||April 11, 2013
There are a lot of Broadway shows I’m excited about, mostly because my general outlook on life is "excited." But I’d be lying if I didn’t say I had a soft spot for Matilda the Musical.
I may be an adult, but there are just some ways in which I refuse to grow up. My unabashed love for things I adored in my childhood is one of them. I really loved "Matilda" the movie as a kid. It had everything going for it, including magical powers (which I was convinced I would someday discover I also had), the act of overcoming a hardship, and a happy ending.
