Matilda the Musical is the musical based on the 1988 children’s novel by the same name by Roald Dahl.  It was adapted by  Dennis Kelly, with music and lyrics by Tim Minchin and directed for the stage by Matthew Warchus. The musical’s narrative centers on Matilda, a precocious 5-year-old girl with the gift of  telekinesis, who loves reading, overcomes obstacles caused by her family and school, and helps her teacher to reclaim her life.   Matilda still holds the record for most Olivier awards won by a musical, tying with  Hamilton in 2018. At the 2013 Tony Awards, the show won five awards, including the  Tony Award for the Best Book of a Musical.
