ROALD DAHL MADE UP LOADS OF SILLY WORDS and was also a great rhymerizer. I — like so many kids — was brought up on a diet of his children's novels, but it was probably his hilariously grotesque poetry collection, Revolting Rhymes, that had the greatest impact on me. (I'm now 39 years old, and I still spend most of my time trying to find rhymes for lines that don't need to rhyme.) Dahl's love of language and the musicality of words, combined with his ability to make us laugh at subjects that are a little bit dark and scary, meant that for me, being asked to write songs for Matilda was like Bruce Bogtrotter being offered a jam doughnut. Yum.

I think theatre should always aim to make its audience laugh and cry, unless there's a really good reason why not. Stories are best when they are a bit like roller coasters, with highs and lows, twists and turns, a good bit of fear and the significant risk that someone might vomit. Matilda has all these things, making it the perfect story for a stage musical.

Songs allow us to make those high soar even higher and those lows seem even darker and the turns ever twister and the ending all the more satisfying. Then all you need is to add some awesome actors and a sumptuous stage set, a dollop of delightful dancing and a sprinkling of genuine, real-life magic... and you're off. Buckle up!

《玛蒂尔达》第一轮澳卡的场刊上也有丁仔和Dennis的推荐语(其它卡我就不知道啦),不过显然这本书的出版时间更早。

悉尼场刊……嗯我不知道场刊这种说法精不精确。

悉尼场刊

这版Matilda和其它版本的区别是它的封面是宽街音乐剧的海报而非Quentin Blake的插画,前后都有音乐剧《玛蒂尔达》的硬广,还有音乐剧主创写的前言。正文和插图没有变化。此外,它和所有企鹅平装本的Dahl一样纸质普通,价格低廉,当周边收还是蛮划算的。毕竟现在ebay上西区玛蒂尔达的纸飞机都1架5镑不包邮了(……)。

#今天宽街玛蒂尔达复排了吗# 算了,当我没说。
