What You Can Expect

Matilda Theater Show in London

See the hit musical Matilda on the west end!

Follow the fictional story of Roald Dahl’s Matilda Wormwood, the extraordinary child brought to life in the author’s 1988 children’s novel. Brought up by cruel parents and faced with the formidable Miss Trunchbull at school, Matilda rebels and uses her telekinetic abilities to help her friend Miss Honey and change her own destiny.

Watch the antics of the beloved characters played out on stage against a medley of songs by Tim Minchin, themed around key scenes from the book. Listen to Miss Honey singing about Matilda in the first act, and enjoy The Smell of Rebellion when the children turn against Miss Trunchbull to help their favorite teacher.

You have the choice of two seating options for the performance inside the New London Theatre. Standard priced seats offer a good view of the stage and are usually located in the rear stalls (stage level) or dress (upper) circle.

The performance lasts two hours and forty minutes and includes an interval break.

Make the most of this memorable evening and enjoy a 2-course pre-show dinner at Scoff and Banter. Scoff and Banter is situated close to the theater and serves a variety of dishes made with good quality ingredients. A sample menu can be viewed in the Itinerary section below.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

Took Viator Voucher to the ticket window, and picked up the tickets with no problem. We had very good seats, and the show was excellent.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2014

Matilda was highly entertaining, the dancing especially of the children in the cast were precise and energetic
and there were definitely some showstoppers. This show definitely lived up to all of its reviews. A must see for everyone!

3 star rating: Worth doing July 2014

The Play was beyond brilliant but we already knew that - although the tickets were on the second mezzanine which I thought were not as good as what I expected. They were OK tickets - but for the price certainly should have been better. Now I got these tickets for a friend traveling with us. Thanks to our knowing one of the broadway producers of the show in NY we were able to get other tickets for ourselves that were outstanding. I just would have hoped that my friend would have been down with her son in Orchestra with us. So Fabulous show - don't miss the show.. request where the heck the seats are if you are paying for premium seating.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this June 2014

Felt ripped off. Seats were terrible and dinner service was horrible and the minimum. Loved the show but not the viator package. You all must have made a fortune on us. I was v v disappointed
