Billy Elliot Critics' Reviews

"Billy Elliot does almost everything a musical should do, and more."

Review by Richard Zoglin from Time

"One of the most electric, passionate and exhilarating shows to land on Broadway in years!"

Review by David Cote from Time Out New York

"The best gift from Britain since Harry Potter."

Review by Barbara Hoffman from The New York Post

"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."

Review by Ben Brantley from The New York Times

"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."

Review by John Simon from Bloomberg News
