This is one outstanding play right in the heart of London just a 5 minute walk from the Victoria Underground bus Station. The show takes a little while to grab your interest but it picks up steam and by the middle of the second half your hooked. The young boy playing the lead role is outstanding and the 'toe stomping'... More

What a production. Lively and energetic, great choreography and carried so well by the young cast. The songs are brilliant and the story told so well - Electricity was a highlight for me. Some strong language - which is totally appropriate to the show, but may not be suitable for younger children? We were really high up when we saw... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the story, acting, sing dancing and stage effects. The children were amazing especially Billy! Also appreciated that the air-con worked in this theatre.

Four years ago, the musical opened in London to enthusiastic reviews. It mainly deserves them. For a matinee and evening performance, it was shown in cinemas here and abroad recently. A DVD is it seems to be released at Christmas. Settings and stage machinery are impressive, principal singers are not asked to reach high notes but the cast - including... More

We enjoyed Billy Elliot but somehow, like some other reviewers ,we came away feeling that it was something of a curate's egg. The main characters were excellent but do men and women from the North East always swear and bellow in each other's faces? Just because you are working class does that mean every other word is a swear word?... More

Well presented, great acting and dancing, funny and serious parts. bit long at 3 hours, but really enjoyed it. Some strong language, but appropriate for the era being portrayed, and strong northern accent which can be hard for non English natives to understand. Interval drinks more sensibly priced than many London theaters. Would recommend.
