I’m not sure if it makes us bad parents, but Jasmine and Alexa have been into Tim Minchin for many years. When we heard, in 2011, he had written the lyrics and music for a musical based on “Matilda” by Roald Dahl (an author they loved) we promised we would take them. Tickets eventually went on sale late last year in time for Christmas presents, and last night we finally fulfilled our promise. Alexa has been waiting nearly 1/3 of her life!
It was a wonderful night and Matilda deserves all its awards and accolades.
Just because I find myself in this story,
It doesn’t mean that everything is written for me.
If I think the ending is fixed already,
I might as well be saying
I think that it’s OK!
And that’s not right!
