Based on Roald Dahl's book about a child prodigy who must outwit a sadistic headmistress and horrid parents, this English musical delivers mischievous fun while hitting the requisite sentimental notes and smuggling in an antiauthoritarian message. Tim Minchin's cheeky Britpop score and Matthew Warchus's cartoonish staging combine for delight. Ages 4 and up.
