The Season of Billy Elliot on Broadway

If you haven't had the opportunity to see Billy Elliot in London or on Broadway yet, maybe you will have an upcoming occasion to treat yourself and someone you love to one of the best shows ever to play on a live Broadway stage.

Billy Elliot takes place during the turbulent economic times in England during a coal minors strike during the 1980's. In Billy Elliot, we are witness to a small coal mining town on the brink of starvation after being out "on strike" for nearly a year with no end in sight. Making things even more difficult for the Elliot family is when the youngest family member, Billy Elliot decides he wants to become a ballet dancer, much to the total dismay of his "generations-long coal mining family" roots. Billy Elliot is an amazing musical, complete with wonderful dance routines performed by three different youngsters all alternating in the role every other day for excited New York audiences. I saw the show three times several months ago, enjoying it as much as any of the several hundred plus shows I've been fortunate enough to see in my days as a legitimate ticket broker for Broadway.

Billy Elliot on Broadway is based on the major motion picture film of 2000 and has wonderful music by Elton John and Lee Hall (with a book by Mr. Hall) as well. Direction is by Stephen Daldry who also directed the film version as well. Billy Elliot won 10 Tony Awards and is selling out every performance in New York. The cast has talent that will have you remembering their performances for a long time to come.
