Matilda: The Musical coming to the US

The Royal Shakespeare Company plans to bring its production of Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical to New York in early 2013.

Matilda The Musical premiered at The Courtyard Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon, home of the RSC, in November 2010. The production transferred to London’s West End on Oct. 25, 2011, where the show continues to play to sold-out houses.

Matilda The Musical is written by playwright Dennis Kelly, with music and lyrics by the Australian comedian, musician and composer Tim Minchin (flawless ginger king). Tony Award winner Matthew Warchus directs.

I am pretty freaking excited, tbh. I'd see anything involving Tim Minchin, and Matilda is my childhood. Any brits seen it?
