Q&A with T Sean Maher (Mr. Wormwood)


Q: What's the most fun part of being in "Matilda?"

A: The chance to play a comical villain. I have played the second banana comic many times before and often played the villain. Rarely are they blended. Mr. Wormwood is such a fun role! A children's theatre character in a Mainstage show!

Q: Why do you think people should come to see this show?

A: The chance to see this amazing kids ensemble. The incredible amount of young talent is mind boggling.

Q: If you could go back to school like the kids in this show, what would you do and why?

A: Face all the naysayers, and tell them what I'm thinking.

Q: What has it been like to work with so many young actors in this process?

A: As I said before, the amount of talent is incredible. Our Matildas are taking on some heavy subject matter like pros!

Q: If you could play any of the kids' parts, who would you choose, and why?

A: Probably Michael.....Living in his own little world.
