Acting Cultural Event Report

752 words - 4 pages

The Royal Shakespeare Company production of Matilda the Musical, adapted from Roald Dahl’s 1988 novel, was a marvelous performance to attend. The performance, presented in the heart of New York City at the popular Shubert Theatre, follows the story of a young girl named Matilda and her magnificent hopes and dreams for a brighter future. Matilda the Musical is about words and language, books and stories, and their immense power as weapons of defense, attack and survival.

To comprehend the amount of labor and dedication that has to occur for an adult to produce a performance is difficult to consider, but yet it is realistic. However, conceiving the thought that such a young girl, as Pizzolo, is able to apply the exact same skills at such a youthful age, is incomprehensible. Furthermore, a strong, brave, and powerful actress must portray Matilda’s character. The chosen actress for this role exhibits such qualities, in addition to her own ambitions and dreams for the future. The combination of the actress’s personal qualities and the given circumstances of the character, work together to benefit the shows success. Unlike other Broadway musicals that I have seen, the main character in Matilda is a child. As once said by Sam Levenson, “One of the virtues of being very young is that you don’t let the facts get in the way of your imagination.” This quotation is related to the imaginative qualities of the young actress that portrays Matilda, in addition to the artistic character of Matilda herself. Indifferent to the business affairs that occur behind the scenes, the young actress is able to devote herself to dreaming indefinitely and to growing up – as both a character and as a young girl.
