Everybody Loves Billy

Can't guess which Billy I'm talking about? Why Billy Elliot of course. The show which won ten 2009 Tony Awards including Best Musical of the Year is one of Broadway's most popular shows. Based on the 2000 Academy Award winning movie Billy Elliot takes place in a small town in London in the 1980's during the height of the miner's strike. Billy who struggles to find his place within his working class family soon discovers that his new found passion for dance is what makes him happy. Despite resistance from his father he does not give up his dreams of a better life for himself. Now believe it or not but I have never seen the show. Look I'm sure it's good. It didn't win all those awards for nothing. It's just not my type of show.

Maybe I'm just afraid that because there is so much hype I will be disappointed if the show is not the greatest thing since sliced bread. Same thing happened with Jersey Boys. I waited until almost two years after it opened for the same reason. Well as it turns out I was worried for nothing. I loved it. You know what? Maybe one of these days I will have to check out Billy Elliot. Who knows? I might even like it. Stranger things have happened. Now for those of you who want to see the show I have good news. From now thru March 27 you can get tickets to see this Tony winning musical at prices that can't be beat. Get your tickets to see Billy Elliot on Broadway. Who knows? Maybe I'll see you there. Until next time theatre fans.
