Does that mean Hayley has left? She was sensational when I saw her.

Only one new Matilda or all new Matildas?

I have no idea really. Hayley has left, and a new one starts tonight but not sure about the other 3!

I walked past the theatre earlier and there was a girl listed as Matilda whose name I didn't recognise. I want to say something Fry.... Christine? I'm probably COMPLETELY wrong about her name! Well, I hope she had fun, whoever she is :)

Broadway previews have started - show seems 98% the same as the Summer 2012 revisions to West End (i.e. changing Miracle into a kid's party). The only real difference seems to be at the start of Act Two. The Entr'acte has been cut right down, followed immediately by Lavender's "newt" speech, then When I Grow Up.

Unless I've totally missed this, in London When I Grow Up still opens right after Telly/Entr'acte, doesn't it?

It is Telly, then Lavender and then When I Grow Up at the moment in London. I think it used to be telly then when I grow up too.

Do we know if it's all new Matilda's yet?

Or why Hayley has left? Is there only a certain time allowed for them to perform seeing as they're so young? Or was she too old for the part now?

I thought I read somewhere ages ago that its something to do with the height of the Matilda rather than their age? Obviously they have to look young enough also!
