NEW YORK (AP) - A musical about a girl with extraordinary powers is hoping to jump the Atlantic.
The Royal Shakespeare Company said Tuesday it is planning for its production of Roald Dahl's "Matilda The Musical," to open in New York early 2013.
The musical debuted in late 2010 at the company's home in Stratford-upon-Avon and then transferred to London's West End in 2011, where it is still playing.
It's based on Dahl's 1988 novel.
The musical is written by the playwright Dennis Kelly, with music and lyrics by the Australian comedian and composer Tim Minchin. The director is Tony Award-winner Matthew Warchus.
