The four girls who play the title role in the new Broadway musical "Matilda" have to always remember not to smile onstage. Backstage is entirely another matter.
Watch out, Broadway: The four little girls picked to play the telekinetic heroine Matilda in New York have been revealed _ and they're already pretty magical.
Bailey, 10, says the role is hard because Matilda is bullied and feels alone.
"It's hard and easy at the same time," says Bailey. "It's easy not noticing them but it's hard when they laugh because it makes you want to laugh, too. It's hard not smiling with them."
