Billy Elliot – the Musical

It was an excellent movie and is now a terrific musical. It is a big risk to put the success of a show in the hands of a 12 year old, which is what this musical requires. Billy is on stage almost the whole time and dominates when he is there. fortnautely, the boys in this production are well up to the challenge. We only saw one of course, but other reviews are consistent in reporting on how good the Billy’s are.
Elton John wrote the music so it is definitely singable, but is is the dancing the really drives the show.

Theatre junkie, who thinks live theatre is the ultimate form of living on the edge. You never know what will happen when an actor steps on the stage.
