Matilda is a story about dreaming big, even though you may just be little. This hit musical is based on Roald Dahl's much-loved book of the same name, which tells the tale of an extraordinary child with hideous parents and an even more horrible headmistress. The production is given the musical treatment by the combined talents of Tim Minchin and the Royal Shakespeare Company - a winning combination earning it four awards at the 2013 Tonys!

A Broadway phenomenon since its inception in 1975, Chicago puts the BAD in, well bad-ass dames. A scorching musical satire on celebrity and crime, Chicago is a fearless portrayal of the pursuit of infamy that rings true in any decade. Set in 1920s Chicago, the tale focuses on two women both accused of murdering their lovers, and their insidious journey to freedom, justice be damned. The world's longest musical revival is currently on a hugely successful North American tour, so break out the fishnet gloves, tap shoes and practise your jazz hands!

Built in 1927 and beginning it's life as the Stanley Theatre, the Benedum Center reopened in its current form in 1987 after extensive renovations. The refurbishments included extensions to the stage and a new building, but the original vintage interior was restored to its former glory. A jewel in the crown of Pittsburgh's cultural district, the center hosts the best Broadway shows and exciting concerts as they tour, and is also home to resident organisations including the Pittsburgh CLO, Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre, and the Pittsburgh Opera.
