Matilda may be a little girl, but ‘Matilda the Musical’ is a big show with a lot of props that are all the responsibility of one man. Critic at Large Greg Moody went backstage in San Francisco to meet him.
It was a big night at the Tony Awards for a Colorado man.
Gabriel Ebert fell in love with the theater watching Denver area shows with his father, Barry. Now Gabriel is nominated for a Tony Award for his role in the new Broadway musical “Matilda.”
“Matilda: The Musical” is a witty musical adaptation of the novel by Roald Dahl and is true to his bleak vision of childhood as a savage battleground.
The nominations were announced Tuesday in a televised event co-hosted by Tony winner Sutton Foster and “Modern Family” star Jesse Tyler Ferguson. The awards will be broadcast on CBS from Radio City Music Hall on June 9.
