Nadine: Going to see Matilda on Broadway

by in Blog

We started this trip by visiting our cousins Noel and Lily in New Jersey for two days. While we were there, mom and I went to see the broadway play Matilda. Going into a broadway theater surprised me. My expectations were a large theater with a couple of stories of seats. It was completely different. It was a small theater with only two stories of seats. The bottom story must have sat about five hundred, while the top probably sat about the same amount of people. The theme of the set was Scrabble pieces. Most of the theater was covered in fake Scrabble pieces of different fonts and sizes. Some of them spelled words, while others were just random letters, and other had music notes on them instead of letters. The children in the musical were absolutely amazing! It seemed like each of them were unique, which I guess they were. It must have been hard to cast the children, but who ever did it was amazing at their job. The children were very good, but my favorite character was ms. Trunchbull. She was played by a man, who was amazing at playing her. He wore a short skirt the whole time. He did some very funny things during the musical that mostly had to do with the fact that he was playing a girl. He sang some really good songs. The children also sang some really good songs, in fact my favorite song from the whole musical was sang by the children. My favorite song was the very first song, Myricle, though I absolutely loved the whole musical!

    I didn’t know you were stopping in New York for a few days! I was just thinking that I would love a trip back there again, and you got to go see a Broadway Show! I sure hope you enjoyed the city and the show. Matida got rave reviews, and I hope you gave it a rave too! Did you eat somewhere fun? Did you go to Central Park? Ah, New York City… Lucky you!

    Nadine, I’m so envious that you got to see Matilda! Maybe you should tell your Aunt Shelby about that play, because she will be directing plays up here in Bartlesville. Grandma Nadine told me yesterday that you are in Majorca, Spain, which sounds wonderful. My dad lived there for a while and he LOVED it. When you get back to Austin, I have a belated birthday present for you, that I’m afraid to send in overseas mail (it’s a new charm for your bracelet!). Be safe and have a fantastic time! Hugs to your mom and dad and (though I know you hate to do it) to your brother.
