Much of the power of Billy Elliot as an honest tear-jerker lies in its ability to give equal weight to the sweet dreams of terpsichorean flight and the sourness of a dream-denying reality.

The one name on everybody's lips is BILLY.

Billy Elliot The Musical is the new show that has captured Broadway’s heart and received the best reviews for any musical in years. Called “EXTRAORDINARILY UPLIFTING” by Time Out New York and “INTOXICATING” by The New York Times, Billy Elliot is a joyous, exciting and feel-good celebration of one boy following his heart and making his dreams come true.

Based on the critically acclaimed feature film, Billy Elliot is brought to life by the movie’s original creative team – director Stephen Daldry, choreographer Peter Darling and writer Lee Hall - along with music legend Elton John, who has written what the New York Post calls “HIS BEST SCORE YET!”

The cast features Haydn Gwynne (Olivier Award nomination, London production), Gregory Jbara (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels), Carole Shelley (The Elephant Man, Wicked), Santino Fontana (Sunday in the Park with George revival) and, sharing the role of Billy, David Alvarez, Trent Kowalik and Kiril Kulish.
