I loved this show! The irony, the funny moments. Both me and my friend had an emotional travel from tearing up to bursting into laughter during the hours it lasted. I would pleasantly recommend it!

This musical production is brilliant, one of the best I've ever seen! It was stunning, the acting was superb as was the singing. The dancing & ballet was superb too, well worth the £63 we paid for excellent seats in the stalls row N, good view too. I was nearly in tears in a few places by the quality of... More

Billy Elliot tells the story of a boy who wants to dance with music from Elton John. The boys who take it in turns to play Billy are the real stars

I have been to quite a few theatre productions and this was by far the best. As it was a musical I was looking forward to a Marc Bolan, feel good, sing along ish, light hearted kind of show. How wrong could I be!! It was so powerful, emotional, had my partner and me in tears! Cannot get over the... More

even though I didn't particularly like the show I have to admit to the overall high standards of west end shows. The actors are fabulous, the kids especially. The Orchestra was perfectly in tune, the setting created the proper atmosphere- pretty much nothing to complain about. The balcony was a bit steep for my taste- having a bit of an... More

Great show, great acting and music, and a story that is compelling and heart-warming. This musical has won may Tonys(and for good reason). Great for adults and children (young teenagers and older)

Seen it twice now and loved it both times. I was a teenager through the miners' strikes and Thatcher's reign but it's a masterpiece of social history as well as a funny, witty, crafty, excellent performance. Utterly perfect in every way. Go. You won't be disappointed.
