We went watching Matilda on July 18th which was the hottest day of the year! They were well prepared with slushes of sale on entrance. The theatre was quite warm but bearable.
I wasn't expecting to enjoy the show as I have never read the book or seen the film but I really enjoyed it! The acting was brilliant, especially from the children. The songs are written by Tim Minchin so they were quite catchy and feel good. I think the 2nd half of the show was more entertaining than the 1st. It was all enjoyable though and I would recommend it. It is obviously primarily for children so there were a lot of children there but we went as 3 adults and all loved it!
Our seats were high in the upper circle but we didn't feel too far away and I also had plenty of leg room which is important with me being quite tall.
There are plenty restaurants around for a pre-theatre meal. We ate in a Mexican which I would highly recommend called Cantina Laredo which is about 2 minutes' walk away.
