Billy Elliot Reaches Milestone

That's right theatre fans. On January 24 Billy Elliot The Musical will celebrate it's 500th performance on Broadway. The show which won ten 2009 Tony Awards including Best Musical opened on Broadway in November 2008 and continues to delight audiences of all ages eight times a week at the Imperial Theatre. It was also recently announced that the show recouped it's entire investment in fourteen months.

The cast is currently headed by Michael Dameski, Alex Ko, Trent Kowalik, Liam Redhead and Dayton Tavares, who rotate in the title role, with Kate Henning as Mrs. Wilkinson, Gregory Jbara as Dad, Carole Shelley as Grandma, Will Chase as Tony and Trevor Braun and Jake Evans Schwencke alternating as Michael.

Now unlike everyone else in my office I have never seen the show. To be honest it doesn't really interest me. What do I know? One of my favorite shows in the last few years was Passing Strange. Now while it was a critical and audience favorite it closed after six months. Besides being one of Broadway's biggest hits it continues to be one of London's most popular shows as well. Call now to get your tickets to see Billy Elliot The Musical on Broadway. It is a winner.
