About The Cambridge Theatre
Built in 1930, the Cambridge Theatre has a small foyer and large open auditorium. It's a perfect example of Art Deco style with its simple but beautifully designed interior. The theatre seats just over 1300 people split over three levels; the stalls, dress circle and upper circle. Originally designed as a picture house, the auditorium is free from obstructions and gives a good clear view to the stage from nearly every seat in the house. Located on the Seven Dials, the venue is surrounded by a whole host of attractions, restaurants, bars and hotels and getting to and from the theatre is never a problem.

First show in London and it did not disapoint this is a mush see show and a special mention to Alex who played matilda she was excellent from start to finish Graham, 16 Oct 2021
Having read the books as a child and seen the film version, I was familiar with the storyline. However, whilst some aspects of the story ate omitted, this is a fun and vibrant interpretation with good music and excellent acting talent, especially from the young actors.
The staging was very well done, utilising various technical and creative methods. However there were times where there seemed to be an imbalance with the sound. Christopher, 13 Oct 2021
