How was your experience?
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 were OK; Billy in London was much better. The northern England accents were quite mixed in this performance, the actor playing Billy's dad shouted rather than talked his lines in Act 1. But the basic story is a very strong one and if you've not seen it, this second-time around touring company will seem OK.
