This adaptation of Billy Elliot was outstanding. Very professional and entertaining. True to the movie and with a very talented cast, particularly the boy playing Billy. The musical score was powerful and the choreography captured the chaos of...continued

The reviewers wrote: "Billy's the Best", and they're absolutely right. Brilliant show performed by a terrific cast with lots of heart. Not to be missed. Goldstar and Segerstrom are the reasons this gets four stars. Otherwise, the show and...continued

Really liked the play. The dancing was so good. A little hard to understand some of the words. We got the cheaper seats, because that is all that was left. I wish we had closer seats.

This production is a polished, well lubricated machine that hits an extraordinary number of high note, high points and emotional highlights. GREAT choreography, music and super talented performers. I'm not being paid to write this. Loved it.

As a huge fan of the original movie, I was disappointed in the stage production of Billy Elliot. There were some wonderful moments, and Billy's dancing was wonderful, but the dialogue was, at times, difficult to understand. The entire production...continued

This was a full scale production with excellent actors. However, it just wasn't my thing. Too many "kid" actors for my taste, and I didn't care all that much for the musical score despite that Elton John was a part of it. I left after the first...continued

The role of Billy Elliot had an understudy. He was OK, but I assume the person that normally plays the role would be better. The production felt more like a high school production than a professional production. The set was nothing special. It was...continued

This is the best play I have seen in a long time: funny, poignant, entertaining and inspirational. Noah Parets is impossibly brilliant as Billy. How can one 13 year old dance and act so brilliantly, be in every scene and carry the whole show on...continued

Excellent performance, all the kid are incredibly good, and Drew just a future Nureyev..
it was worth to face traffic at 6pm afternoon to reach the theater.
Keep sending me these kind of offers. What about Flashdance?

Show was good. I just wish our tickets weren't in the nose bleed seats, but that was my fault.
