Owner description: Billy Elliot The Musical is the new show that has captured Broadway's heart and received the best reviews for any musical in years. Called "extraordinarily uplifting" by Time Out New York and "intoxicating" by The New York Times, Billy Elliot is a joyous, exciting and feel-good celebration of one boy following his heart and making his dreams come true. Based on the critically acclaimed feature film, Billy Elliot is brought to life by the movie's original creative team and music legend Elton John.

“Boys are good, plot line - terrible!”
Reviewed 10 June 2012

Just skip this show, no member of your family will enjoy it. Music is blah, language - crude, dancing is good but does not have the capacity to save the show. I personally was nauseated by the communist/socialist undertones. If the show comes to your town do a polite " no, thank you"

“Brilliant, I'm from where The story is based.”
Reviewed 2 June 2012

Really enjoyed it, our first broadway show and it was fantastic, accents were good and the child singers were singers we're amazing, loved the police riot shield scene. Going to see jersey boys soon hope that is as good.

I love musicals and I love dancing, but this show just didn't do it for me. I liked the movie better.

“Great show--trouble with the accents”
Reviewed 8 May 2012

I loved this show. The dancing is spectacular. My only gripe is that some of the characters used an accent that was at times difficult to understand.
