A Slice of What This Musical Can Offer,
This review is from: Matilda The Musical (Audio CD)
Matilda has been the darling of theatre critics in recent years, mainly for its comic moments, as well as being both appealing for both children and adults. So for those that have enjoyed the experience of seeing it on stage may wish to revisit the songs in one of these cast recordings. Whilst there seems to be a bit of absence of some of the comic timing that made the musical such a joy to watch, this cast recording will do the trick for those looking for their fix of this musical.
Whilst this cast recording is merely a slice of what this musical can offer, it does offer some rather good performances of all the key songs. It should be noted that this recording comes from 2011, and there is a Broadway cast recording from 2013, which does feature some of the score in its track listings. Therefore, with this in mind, getting this album may give you a good idea of what the songs are like from the musical, but not what the musical is really like.
