Broadway and London's hit musical play and winner of record-breaking seven Olivier Awards will be making its way to the west coast as it embarks on a national tour.

"Matilda the Musical" is about Matilda, an incredibly smart, caring young girl who wants nothing more than to have a better life. When she discovers she has an incredible gift, her life changes forever.

The musical will be showing at the Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles from May 2015 to July 2015.

This showing is part of the Center Theatre Group’s 2014-2015 season. It will be directed by Tony Award®-winner Matthew Warchus, with the help from Tony Award®-winner playwright Dennis Kelly’s book and music and lyrics by Tim Minchin.
