A life-affirming musical about a young boy beating all odds to fulfill his dream.
Comments from published critics
‘‘Billy Elliot does almost everything a musical should do, and more.’’
‘‘One of the most electric, passionate and exhilarating shows to land on Broadway in years!’’
‘‘The best gift from Britain since Harry Potter.’’
‘‘Seductive and smashing, with intoxicating, fleet-footed flashes of art and big, knock-'em-dead sequences. Elton John's songs are infused with the energy of joy.’’
‘‘Expertly staged by Stephen Daldry, Billy Elliot is dazzlingly choreographed by Peter Darling in some breathtaking dance sequences of various genres, from classical ballet to contemporary forms. The cast never makes the slightest false step, balletic, histrionic or emotional.’’
