Matilda in Concert
Friday, March 22, at 7:30 pm | State Theatre New Jersey in New Brunswick


Acclaimed actor, producer and director Danny DeVito will join famed film composer David Newman and the New Jersey Symphony in a very special performance of Matilda in Concert at State Theatre New Jersey. Come see New Jersey native DeVito narrate the film, while Newman’s enchanting score is performed live to picture!

Based on Roald Dahl’s award-winning book and directed by Danny DeVito, from a screenplay by Nicholas Kazan & Robin Swicord, Matilda is the story of a little girl (Mara Wilson) who loves books and wants to go to school. Belittled by mean parents and terrorized by a disparaging school headmistress, Matilda uses her secret telekinetic gift to stand up for herself, her friends, and the lovely Ms. Honey. This humorous and touching coming-of-age story will have audience members young and old humming in their seats!

The performance will also feature celebrity guest appearances by actors who played characters in Matilda, including Rhea Perlman (Mrs. Wormwood) and Mara Wilson (Matilda).
