Great show - funny & poignant. Some fantastic characters in the show and superb performances, particularly from the lad who played Billy.
Not sure all US audiences will understand the socio-economic backdrop so I would reccommend reading the info provided before the show, it will help make things clear.
One minor criticism. The story is based in Durham in the North of England. The accent is hard for a Brit to imitate let alone an American. Some of the accents were really really bad, might have been better to try for a more nuetral English accent.
Still once I got used to them that didn't spoil the show.
Well worth going to see, don't take kids though (13 & under) there is a lot of very strong language

“A stirring production!” -Boston Globe
“Billy Elliot has all the right moves! A master class!” —Boston Herald
“Love, love, love Billy Elliot! One of the most inspiring musicals of my life.” —JoycesChoices.com
“__Billy Elliot will win your heart!” —Patriot Ledger__
“Daldry and Darling’s vibrant stagings grab hold from the start. “The Stars Look Down,” razzle-dazzle girls’ dance-class “Shine” and explosively evolving “Solidarity” introduce the eclectic dance forms. The eyes never rest as Billy’s home and other sites unfold and slide in from the walls of Ian MacNeil’s boldly drab union-hall set (expressively lit by Rick Fisher)."-San Francisco Chronicle
“This touring production captures what Broadway audiences saw …” —Variety
