AMAZING performance of Matilda at Cambridge Theater! We got last minute seats to see the musical performance and the set design was outstanding!! The theater was small enough that we got great unobstructed views of the stage. World class performances and amazing effects!! Highly recommended if you are traveling with kids!!! more

I went to the Cambridge Theatre to see Matilda the Musical and it was INCREDIBLE. GENIUS. REMARKABLE.

The set is one-of-a-kind. The only set I can think of that was cooler was for Curious Incident, but I liked Matilda more as far as productions go. The whole theatre was on theme for the musical, so it is a truly immersive experience.

You must see Matilda at the Cambridge Theatre! more

Does this have anything to do with the song "Fat Bottomed Girls"? That's by Queen and they're from England, right?

The reason I think there might be a correlation is because the seats at this theater are huge (compared to seats at Broadway theaters in NYC). They are really roomy with plenty of space for legs, hips, thighs, etc.

I had stalls seats and it was super easy to get into and out... more
