Has anyone seen the Billy Elliot musical?

Did you like it? I loved the film!

Also wondering about the venue... do the row of seats curve upwards towards the back so you have a good view of the stage?

Are the expensive seats worth the money?

Thank you!

Some of the language is choice so probably not suitable for young children but otherwise a two thumbs up.

For more reviews and details of the best (and worst seats) go to theatremonkey.com/VICTORIAPALACEbooking.htm

If you loved the film and so understand the story you will love it. As everybody was exiting the theatre you could really feel that everybody had had a great time. We had expensive seats and for four or us at the time i thought "ouch" but it was so worth it.

Enjoy

Loved the film, liked the London musical.

JBart is right about the positive vibe in the theatre. I sensed waves of affection for the young boy who played Billy.

As I said in another thread, I found the dialogue a bit tricky as an American.

Buy a program going in, turn to the glossary, follow along and enjoy!

Enjoyed the review, mr cellophane. And I was surprised that you had trouble with the dialogue, too.

I keep hearing they want to bring the show to New York. It'll be interesting to see how that works out.

When I returned from London I watched the movie again. And was amazed by Jamie Bell's performance again.
