If you have not seen this, you must! I attended the Sat. 2012.08.04 show with Ben Cook as Billy. He was amazing! The entire cast and production was by far more entertaining than I anticipated. I enjoyed it so much I already have tickets for Baltimore. Yes, I will travel to see this show again, probably more than once. Excellent! p.s. front row seats are worth whatever you spend.

5.0 star rating Chuck from Vancouver,


Haven't seen the tour version, but did catch the London version several years ago. London production was fabulous, and I expect the tour version will be close as tour production will hopefully follow formula. Will bring my daughter to see it again, as well as the rest of the family to see the Vancouver production. I read some harsh reviews on this board, so i hope the tour versions will live up (which i anticipate it will) to the 10 Tony awards the Broadway production received. i thought the accents added to the authenticity. cheers.

My wife and I agreed Billy Elliot is the best stage show we've ever seen. That wouldn't mean much if we were in our 20s, or even our 30s, but we're both 70+ and have attended more than just a few stage shows during the past 50 years. The show was absolutely brilliant, to include the staging, choreography, and acting. The young man who played Billy on 12/18, whose name we unfortunatly can't recall (we're over 70), was fantastic; from the "Playbill" we do remember he is from the eastern part of Massachusetts. Some of the dialogue was difficult to catch due to the appropriate British/Scottish accents, but that in no way detracted from our enjoyment of the show. We can't recommend the Billy Elliot production at the Hippodrome highly enough. If you're looking for a fun night out at the theater, go see it!!! PS...Some language in the show may not be appropriate for young children; we'd grade it PG16. A young child sitting behing us, age about 12, just didn't enjoy the show.

Billy Elliot is funny, touching and more! The set designs are amazing, as well as the lighting. The chorography is frightening - sometimes it looks like someone could get HURT up there!! The music is wonderful, and the entire cast performs at top notch. You will take Billy to your heart as if he were your son. The message is loud and clear and makes you feel alive. You are going to LOVE Billy Elliot. It's one of the best Broadway shows I've ever seen. The audience stands and applauds forever! Do not miss it!!

This is the best show you will ever see. Humor, politics, love, accepting one's true self, dance, music... everything art should be. You will not be disappointed.

we just had a wonderful trip to the bay area.....the ocean, the chowder, the friends, the family! out of the usual agenda, we went to see Billy Elliot. i can't tell you what an ABSOLUTE joy this show was (although i had to buy make-up after the show to cover my cry lines). EVERYBODY in the cast was me SEE IT! (if the tour makes it to L.A. i am going to put it in a package through my travel agency hmmmm..)
