Tim Minchin, the Australian songwriter up for nearly every New York theater award known to Man because of his score for “Matilda,” thinks that listening to Gilbert and Sullivan  with his grandmother may have helped lead him to write for musical theater. Or maybe it was “Jesus Christ Superstar.”  Then there were The Beatles, The Kinks, The Stones, Deep Purple. Also Shakespeare. “I love anyone who tells stories in a unique way.”

Matilda has been nominated for 12 Tony Awards, 7 Drama Desk Awards, 5 Outer Critics Awards
