Matilda the Musical Dublin's background
Matilda the Musical is a spin on the classic children's book "Matilda," which was written by Roald Dahl and published in 1988. Dennis Kelly adapted the story for the stage, and Tim Minchin conceived the lyrics.
The Royal Shakespeare Company first staged the musical at Stratford-upon-Avon in a 12-week trial run between November 2010 and January 2011. Following this, the show premiered at the Cambridge Theatre in London's West End on November 24, 2011. A year and a half later, on April 11, 2013, the show premiered in America on Broadway at the Shubert Theater. The show earned no fewer than seven Olivier Awards in 2012 - the most ever bestowed upon any one show at the time. It remains the record holder for number of Olivier Awards given to a musical. The show also won five Tony Awards in 2013.
