I enjoyed the show. We sat in the second tier and some of the speaking parts were very hard to understand.

The Musical is very good. The cast is outstanding. My personal interest is dance and that was well satisfied. The seats that we were given were too far for us to fully enjoy the event.
The staff at the venue was extremely helpful since it was...continued

Boring, sorry to say. I love musicals but this one fell flat.Nt sure why because story is compelling enough. I think it was poor staging, uninspiring music, hard to hear dialogue, and maybe one to many understudies at our performance. So...continued

After hearing rave reviews about the show, I must say I was disappointed. I didn't realize before attending that there would be quite a bit of foul language and gestures. which didn't particularly bother me. But there were a number of young...continued

Sometimes hard to understand because of heavy british accents. Music a little louder than other musicals I've seen. Otherwise I enjoyed the show because of the great dancing and that is why went in the first place. I also have seen the movie...continued

I had seen Billy Elliott at the Pantages in Hollywood and was very disappointed that the scene I most enjoyed, and was a main reason I came to see it again, was so poorly done camparitively. It was Billy flying while dancing. That was the...continued

Boring, boring, boring. Three hours long with one (barely) 15-minute intermission. Terrible seats on the far left side of the theatre. I lost track of how many sections of stairs I had to climb; every time I thought I was there, the usher said,...continued

The story should be very moving, but this cast did not succeed in doing that. Having seen both the movie and the London cast shortly after it opened years ago there in the west end, to us this touring company seemed very touring. The dancers...continued

Was surprised how empty the theater was and that people left at intermission. Those who stayed were treated to a wonderful production and stood to give praise. The northern England accent is difficult at times, but you just hold on and enjoy the...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

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

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.
