April 14th - Sad news to announce but Broadway's Matilda the Musical has posted its closing notice.

January 1st, 2017 will be the final performance of this unbelievable show on Broadway.

The Tim Minchin tuner based on Roald Dahl’s novelette will play its final Broadway performance January 1, 2017. It opened April 11, 2013, and will have played 37 previews and 1,555 regular performances at the Shubert Theatre.

Matilda the Musical tells the story of a little girl who refuses to be ground down by parents who despise her or by a cartoonishly evil school headmistress named Miss Trunchbull who is determined to break her spirit. With the help of her kindly schoolteacher Miss Honey, Matilda uses her intelligence, her love of books and a mysterious secret super power to prevail over those who would repress her—and to turn Miss Honey’s life around too.

Produced by the Royal Shakespeare Company and The Dodgers, the show closes in the black, having earned back its initial $16 million investment.
