Upcoming Broadway Musical Matilda Has Found Its Stars

The forthcoming Matilda the Musical has finally found the young ladies who will play the role of the title character — all four of them.  Sophia Gennusa, Oona Laurence, Bailey Ryon, and Milly Shapiro are the talented performers who will alternate in the part of the musical’s bright young heroine.  Each of the actresses is making her Broadway debut.

Already a big, award-winning hit in London, Matilda the Musical comes to Broadway’s Shubert Theatre this spring.  The show will begin its preview performance period on March 4, 2013, with its official Broadway opening set for April 11.  The pint-sized performers will be joined onstage by Bertie Carvel, the Olivier Award-winning actor who is going to reprise the role of Miss Trunchbull, which won him so much acclaim in London.

Matilda the Musical has a score by Tim Minchin and a book by Dennis Kelly.  Tony winner Matthew Warchus directs the production.
