BERTIE CARVEL is set to make his Broadway debut in March, in his award-winning role as Agatha Trunchbull in the multi award-winning musical Matilda.
BERTIE starred in the original cast of the musical; an RSC adaptation of Roald Dahl’s classic children’s book with wonderful original music and lyrics by Australian musician/comedian Tim Minchin. The show debuted to huge critical acclaim in Stratford in 2011 and transferred to London’s West End in 2012 to a sold-out run. BERTIE won the prestigious 2012 Olivier Award for Best Actor In A Musical for his masterful performance as the terrifying school headmistress, as well as a 2012 TMA Theatre Award for Best Performance In A Musical. He is now poised to reprise the role in the highly-anticipated Broadway transfer.
Preview performances of Matilda begin at the Shubert Theatre on March 4, 2013, and it will open on April 11. If you’re going to be in New York, get tickets now before it’s too late as this is a truly fantastic show that you don’t want to miss!
