Brought my partner to see this as a birthday treat and we were not disappointed. The show had everything, laughs, tears and some superb choreography. I was completely blown away by it. Highly recommended.

Wow, I have seen a few musicals and to be honest wasn't really looking forward to this one, but we were both blown away at the power of the story and the cast were all amazing. Some very funny moments as well as sad. The cast are all great and there is a lot going on, the young cast are also amazing. Will be going back and taking the rest of the family.

A show full of gritty drama, comedy, emotion and talented dancing. A very wrll deserved standing ovation.
There is swearing, so not recommended for young children in my opinion. Otherwise so amazing!

This was my second visit to see Billy Elliot as I enjoyed it so much the first. The choreography is simply marvelous, the comedy good and the songs catchy; all performed by a very talented cast. We sat in Row C, seats 6 and 17 and had a perfect, unobstructed view of the stage.

A great show to see while in London right off the Victoria tube station - easy to get to. Funny, well performed great music and dancing. Search different ticket sources online, as we were able to find great seat in the stalls for almost 50% off (not buying directly through the theatre).
