We devote this episode to “Matilda,” Broadway’s hit new musical. Taped the day after the show’s Broadway gala opening in April, our guests are librettist Dennis Kelly, composer/lyricist Tim Minchin and actor Bertie Carvel, who plays the terrifying Miss Trunchbull. Topics include, the key to successful musical theater, the amazing working habits of Roald Dahl (whose 1988 children’s classic is the inspiration for their show), and differentiating between Miss Trunchbull’s massive boil and wart.
