BILLY ELLIOT is the spectacular show with the heart, humor and passion to be called “THE BEST SHOW YOU’LL EVER SEE” by the New York Post and honored with ten 2009 Tony Awards® including BEST MUSICAL. Since its 2005 London debut, which was followed by acclaimed productions in Sydney, New York, Melbourne, Chicago, Seoul, Toronto, and on tour across America, BILLY ELLIOT has delighted the critics, swept the awards and captured the hearts of over 7.5 million people worldwide.
Set in a small English town, the story follows Billy as he stumbles out of the boxing ring and into a ballet class, discovering a surprising talent for dance that inspires his family and his whole community, and changes his life forever.
Based on the internationally acclaimed film, BILLY ELLIOT is brought to life by a phenomenal cast of 45 performers and the Tony Award-winning creative team – director Stephen Daldry, choreographer Peter Darling and writer Lee Hall – along with music legend Elton John, whose score is called “show-stopping and electric” by The New York Times. It’s your turn to experience this joyous celebration of one boy’s journey against the odds to make his dreams come true.
