Matilda & Me
TIM MINCHIN AND THE MAKING OF A GLOBAL MUSICAL SMASH HIT
With exclusive access to the rehearsals of his global theatre hit, Matilda & Me charts the relationship between iconoclast Tim Minchin and the musical (based on Roald Dahl’s beloved book) he has become famous for.
From London and Los Angeles to the opening night in Sydney, this is the story of the irreverent comedian whose unlikely partnership with the esteemed Royal Shakespeare Company provided the opportunity of a lifetime. With the musical the recipient of literally dozens of Helpmann, Tony, Broadway, Critics’ Circle and Olivier Awards, Matilda &Me takes audiences inside the phenomenon. Includes interviews with Andrew Lloyd Webber, Roald Dahl’s wife Felicity, Mara Wilson from Danny DeVito’s Matilda, as well as Eddie Perfect, Andrew Denton, and the musical’s writer Dennis Kelly and director Matthew Warchus.
