Looking Ahead: Matilda and Colin Hay
The best remedy for the Super Bowl blues? Go out and do something fun with friends! Here are two great shows coming to Charlotte this week to boost your spirits.
Matilda the Musical kicks off a weeklong run, Feb. 9-14, at the Belk Theater. Part of the 2015-2016 PNC Broadway Lights Season, Matilda is the story of an extraordinary girl who, armed with a vivid imagination and a sharp mind, dares to take a stand and change her own destiny. Based on the beloved novel by Roald Dahl, it’s been a sold-out hit on Broadway and London’s West End.

Wednesday eveningColin Hay, former frontman for the band Men at Work (“Down Under,” “Overkill,” “Who Can It Be Now?”), comes to McGlohon Theater Wednesday, Feb. 10, at 7:30 p.m. Over the past 15 years, Hay has reinvented himself as a solo artist, regularly selling out theaters and listening rooms across the U.S. and around the world and introducing himself to a new generation of fans in the process.
