Matilda The Musical SHANGHAI
The story of Matilda is essentially an allegory of books and reading: in an era marked by fast growth, only the fading of the written word is the best weapon against authority bullying.
Matilda in the story is a girl who loves reading. At home, her parents favor boys over girls, vulgar snobbery ;And at school, the principal is keen on corporal punishment. In the face of distorted life, how can she rely on courage and wisdom to create a miracle to save herself and those people around her?
