It's Thursday, and time for our weekly visit with theater critic J. Wynn Rousuck, who joins Midday senior producer and guest host Rob Sivak today with her review of Roald Dahl's Matilda: the Musical, now on stage in an extended run at Olney Theatre Center, in Olney, Maryland.

An adaptation of one of the late British author's most popular children's stories, Matilda: The Musical  was written by Dennis Kelly, with music and lyrics by Tim Minchin.  The production at Olney Theatre Center is directed by Peter Flynn,  with choreography by Byron Easley and music direction by Christopher Youstra.  The cast of more than 30 adult and child actors features Emiko Dunn in the title role, Felicia Curry as Miss Honey, and Tom Story as Miss Trunchbull.

Roald Dahl's Matilda: The Musical continues at the Olney Theatre Center through Sunday, July 28.
