'Matilda': Watch a song clip for 'When I Grow Up'

Posted on

Fewer things these days can create the ear to ear smile induced in one of the signature tunes in the hit Broadway musical Matilda than when “When I Grow Up” is performed, which is composer Tim Minchin’s wistful ode to the wonders of remaining young at heart. In the exclusive clip below, watch the entire Broadway ensemble perform the track for the show’s new cast album (now available on iTunes, in stores Oct. 22). And if you don’t take a listen, that’s not right!-as the young bookworms in the story would fervently proclaim.

And check back here tomorrow as EW unveils a recording clip of Bertie Carvel taking on “The Smell of Rebellion”, the number that helped him win an Olivier and a Tony nomination.
