They are the cheapest upper circle seats, only 8 per show.

They recently doubled the amount available to 16 per show, but they're still in the same area.

The queue fills up pretty early these days, I think it's because the shows getting a lot more hype.

Just returned from the Broadway version of Matilda and it was as amazing as the London production!

Only criticism is the accents (toned down) and also how the wormwoods were more toned down !

Also, <spoiler for those who dont want to know the differences>, they cut the mr. wormwood section around him losing his hair after the supergluing of the hair..and his hair changed back to the normal colour at the end...

The wormwoods were more toned down as in less 'loud' ?? Interesting,I thought the wormwoods were really well done in London...

it wasn't as 'over the top' as london but i put it down to character choices on broadway?

I'd definitely put it down to character choices, Paul Kaye and Josie Walker had a very brilliant yet outlandish style in the original cast, subsequent ones seem to have decided to use different styles. So long as the characterisation fits in with the overall show, it's all good in my book :)

Lucy Mae Beacock just performed her last show as Matilda this afternoon. She will be missed.

I saw Lucy's last performance this afternoon. Was my first time seeing the show and I managed to purchase a £5 ticket from the box office early this morning. I really enjoyed the show and thought that the music and cast were fantastic- particularly Haley and David. James Gardner also made a wonderful Bruce- he had a great voice!

The only downside was not being able to understand what was being sung at some points, particularly in the 'bigger' songs such as 'Loud'...this was probably because of our seat location in the upper circle, though!

Very proud of it being a completely original British musical and its' recent opening on B'way- it'll do well, I feel!
