Matilda - Broadway's latest and GREATEST Miracle
on December 1, 2013
After seeing the show on Broadway, I bought the original London version which is terrific in its own right. When the Broadway version came out, I bought it immediately and can't stop listening to it. While a couple of the actors are no longer in the show (i.e. Bertie Carvel) the ensemble is mostly still intact and listening to this album is like reliving the live show. The energy, the passion, the craziness. All four Matildas - all brilliant, enormously talented young ladies - have featured numbers on the CD and I can't praise the ensemble enough (though I do try!). If you like musicals in any way, you should definitely buy this album and get hooked like me. Better yet, if you leave anywhere near New York, go see the show. It is a joy to watch and a joy to listen to.
