Owner description: Now celebrating ten extraordinary years, Billy Elliot the Musical has won the hearts of millions since it opened in London's West End, becoming one of the most beloved, award-winning shows on stage today. Set in a northern mining town, against the background of the 1984/'85 miners' strike, Billy Elliot is the inspirational story of a young boy's struggle against the odds to make his dreams come true. The story follows Billy's journey as he stumbles out of the boxing ring and into a ballet class where he discovers a passion for dance that inspires his family and whole community and changes his life forever. Featuring a timeless score by Elton John, sensational dance and a powerful story that has captivated audiences around the world, Billy Elliot the Musical is a funny, uplifting and spectacular theatrical experience that will stay with you forever. Now seen by over 10 million people worldwide, there's never been a better time to see Billy Elliot the Musical.

“WONDERFUL!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014

Fantastic show! And what better musical to see in London. I highly recommend it. If you haven't heard about TKTS.... Go there to buy your tickets! Good story. Good acting/singing. Nothing but good things to say!

“Outstanding performance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014 via mobile

A really superb show which kept you engaged throughout the whole performance. The language made it a little unsuitable for young children , probably under 10, but where it was used it added to the performance it didn't take away. Even those not interested in dancing would enjoy this show as it encompassed politics, economics, relationships and life in general, the dance certainly is not the whole show, although fabulous as it was. I thoroughly recommend this show .

“A great show”

I loved this show! The irony, the funny moments. Both me and my friend had an emotional travel from tearing up to bursting into laughter during the hours it lasted. I would pleasantly recommend it!
