Actors Emma Thompson and Alisha Weir recently sat down with NBC’s “Today Show” to discuss their experience working together in the musical adaptation of Roald Dahl’s Matilda. The pair discussed the moment when Alisha found out she had been cast in the lead role, and Thompson emphasized the valuable life lessons that can be learned from experiencing failure.

Matilda The Musical has already been shown in theaters in the UK, and a dance sequence from the musical number “Revolting Children” has been trending on TikTok. This has helped generate interest for the upcoming premiere in select theaters on December 9 in the United States, which will then be followed by its release on Netflix on December 25.

Fans of the beloved children’s book and musical theater enthusiasts alike are excited for the chance to see this new production. Thompson and Weir’s interview on the “Today Show” only adds to the buzz surrounding the release of Matilda The Musical.
