While the "Today Show" team was in London covering the Olympics, Meredith Vieira stopped by the Cambridge Theatre to visit the London troupe of the Broadway-bound production of Matilda The Musical.



Matilda premiered at the Royal Shakespeare Company's Courtyard Theatre in November 2010 and later transferred to the West End's Cambridge Theatre, where it continues to run. The Olivier Award-winning production based on the beloved Roald Dahl children's book will begin Broadway previews March 4, 2013, at the Shubert Theatre.

Matilda The Musical has a book by Dennis Kelly and a score by Tim Minchin. Tony Award-winning director Matthew Warchus (God of Carnage, The Norman Conquests, Boeing-Boeing, La Bête, Ghost) directs.
