Can you believe that Billy Elliot has been playing in London for ten years? Time sure does fly doesn't it? Based on the 2000 movie of the same name, Billy Elliot is a must see if you are heading over to London. When the show first opened on Broadway in 2008 I didn't get the chance to see it. For one it was extremely popular. However I knew that eventually I would get the chance to check it out. Thankfully almost three years into the run I saw it. Now I had never seen the movie, so going in I had no idea what to expect.
I can't believe I waited so long. I loved it. The show was so moving not to mention inspirational as well. If you are in London you do not want to miss it. Now for those of you who have never seen the movie or don't know anything about it I have included a brief synopsis about Billy Elliot for you to check out. Maybe it will convince you to purchase tickets to see it. Enjoy!
One of the most award-winning shows on stage today, Billy Elliot the Musical has won the hearts of millions since it opened in London’s West End and has gone on to captivate audiences around the world. Set in a northern mining town, against the background of the 1984/’85 miners’ strike, Billy Elliot is the inspirational story of a young boy’s struggle against the odds to make his dreams come true.
Follow Billy’s journey as he stumbles out of the boxing ring and into a ballet class where he discovers a passion for dance that inspires his family and whole community and changes his life forever.
