Tori Feinstein, Eliza Holland Madore, Brooklyn Shuck and Fina Strazza will join the cast of the Tony Award-winning Broadway production of Matilda the Musical, which continues to play to capacity crowds at the Shubert Theatre.

The four actresses will begin performances in the title role over the course of the next few weeks. 

Feinstein's stage credits include How the Grinch Stole Christmas and "30 Rock." Madore has performed in Once. Shuck played Kate in Annie and appeared in the world premiere of Beaches at Washington, D.C.'s Signature Theatre. Strazza has performed in A Loss of Roses and "A Little Game."

Tony Award-winning director Matthew Warchus (God of Carnage, The Norman Conquests, Boeing-Boeing, La Bête, Ghost) staged the inventive, kid-packed musical that has a book by Dennis Kelly and a score by Tim Minchin. It opened on Broadway April 11, 2013.

Matilda received four Tony Awards, including Best Book of a Musical, Best Featured Actor (Gabriel Ebert), Best Lighting Design and Best Scenic Design.



The U.K. hit 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 Royal Shakespeare Company and The Dodgers present the Broadway run.

The cast also features Christopher Sieber as Miss Trunchbull, Matt Harrington as Mr. Wormwood, Lesli Margherita as Mrs. Wormwood, Jill Paice as Miss Honey and Natalie Venetia Belcon as Mrs. Phelps.

"Matilda the Musical is based on the beloved novel by best-selling author Roald Dahl," press notes state. "It is the story of an extraordinary girl who dreams of a better life. Armed with a vivid imagination and a sharp mind, Matilda dares to take a stand and change her destiny." 

The production has set and costume design by Rob Howell, with choreography by Peter Darling, orchestrations, additional music and musical supervision by Christopher Nightingale, lighting design by Hugh Vanstone and sound design by Simon Baker.
