NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – A Broadway musical based on a beloved and quirky childhood classic cleaned up when Tony Award nominations were announced last week.
“Matilda The Musical,” based on the Roald Dahl classic, picked up 12 nominations.
As CBS 2’s Dana Tyler reported, the show swept London’s Olivier Awards, the British version of the Tony’s.
The job of adapting the 1988 book for the stage started four years ago by the Royal Shakespeare Company.
“Matilda The Musical” is currently playing at the Shubert Theatre.
The 2013 Tony Awards will be handed out on June 9. The show will air live on CBS 2 HD.
