This is truly a British story being told. After seeing Billy Elliot twice in England over 20 years ago, I was afraid they would try and do it in American English. I was thrilled they accomplished the perfect dialect of British English to go along...continued

The Dance in this musical is superb. The story line is handled better than in the movie version.

Although I had trouble understanding the British accents at times, this was a great show! I learned a lot by reading the poster next to the concession stand about the 1984 coal strikes. The actor playing Billy Elliot was a wonderful dancer - top...continued

I enjoyed the show. The story and staging was great. It wasn't the Broadway quality I'm used to, because it seemed like they needed more rehearsal to get their dance routines in synch. The view from my seat was great, but the seats at the...continued

Terrific performance. Tobin was the performer at our show; what a special talent! The rest of the cast was excellent. The theater was a bit draftee up in the balcony, but otherwise a classic theater experience.

Fun and interesting musical. Only a few of the voices were actual good stage voices (mother and dance instructor), while most of the others were passable. Dancing was good to excellent (adult ballet dancer was at the high end of the scale). The...continued

Have been to the Hippodrome many times. Billy Elliott did not disappoint. What did disappoint were the seats. We were given seats in the balcony at the very top. Although they were center, I was not able to trek to the top (row K). I asked an...continued

This event was amazing. The cast and crew did a wonderful job, the performance was breathtaking. Their accents were 'spot on' -- I can attest, I lived in the UK for four years. Definitely reccomend seeing this show.

This is the third time I have seen Billy Elliot. The first two were in London (preUSA) and then NYC. Each version was slightly different. This show was very good. I don't believe it was as good as the London version where "Billy" was amazing...continued

The play was very entertaining, however, at the end, a cast member came out on the stage and appealed for donations at the door as you left. While I was happy to make a donation, the cast member who took it, said nothing, not even a "thank you."...continued

The show is thoroughly enjoyable, with a cast of wonderful and talented artists. The staging is both innovative and artistic. On our date, the lead was played by a 12-y/o boy; imagine a show costing tens of thousands of dollars resting on the...continued
