Billy Elliott or We Will Rock You?

We want to take our 3 teenaged boys ages (14, 16,19) to a couple of plays while we are in London in June. We are thinking trying to decide between Billy Elliott (classic) or We Will Rock You (fun)? What is your advice? We also are thinking of taking them to Taming of the Shrew at the Globe. Its Shakespeare but a comedy!

Taming of the Shrew will be brilliant for them, I have loved this play since my teens.

As to the musical, depends what sort of music they like.

I'm a tad biased towards Billy Elliot. The kids are amazing, as is their dancing. Jukebox musicals though leave me a bit cold (Jersey Boys excepted as it is a great bio-musical) but if your kids love the music of Queen, they'll probably love this too though it has little story.

For me, Billy Elliot. Would your children prefer the other, who knows.

havent seen Billy Elliot yet but We Will Rock you is first class, but if I was taking kids I think I'd lean more toward Billy Elliot..

We went to Billy Elliot last month and thought it was great. Would go back in a heartbeat. Very engaging story line.
