Like any good book, there must be a conclusion, so here’s the final entry in our video series going behind the cast recording of Broadway’s Matilda — appropriately highlighting the very lucky quartet selected to portray the sensitive, telekinetic bookworm at the center of Roald Dahl’s celebrated novel.
In this clip, watch as “The Matildas” (Bailey Ryon, Sophia Gennusa, Oona Laurence and Milly Shapiro) co-tackle “Naughty”, our lead character’s first major song in the show. I dare you not to coo over them just a little, not to mention marvel at how committed they are to their Cockney accents (take that, Dick Van Dyke!).
Matilda is now playing on Broadway at the Shubert Theatre in an open-ended run. Tickets and additional information can be found on the official website.
