KLRU Schedule | Theater Talk | Matilda

We devote this episode to Matilda, Broadway's new musical (nominated for 12 TONY Awards). Taped the day after the show's Broadway gala opening in April, our guests are librettist Dennis Kelly, composer/lyricist Tim Minchin and actor Bertie Carvel, who plays the terrifying Ms. Trunchbull. All three are TONY nominees for their contributions to this show. Topics include, the key to successful musical theater, the amazing working habits of Roald Dahl (whose 1988 children's classic is the inspiration for their show), and differentiating between Ms. Trunchbull's massive boil and wart. Matilda was originally created as a Christmas show in 2010 for the Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford-upon-Avon. Back then, "we weren't thinking about dollars," says Minchin. That said, the show was already looking at an approximately $17 million advance, the day after it opened.
