Billy Elliot is my favourite show ever. I find it very inspirational and I love the music and the cast is incredibly talented. I have seen a lot of great shows like Chicago, Wicked, Book of Mormon, but Billy is still tops for me. I can't imagine anyone being disappointed in this show. Just be aware of the more adult... More

Dancing and singing were spectacular. If you only have time for one musical in London, I recommend considering this one! A delightful evening!

My friend and I booked this shows because of the rave reviews. She had Seen the movie. I had not. At intermission we looked at each other and said "let's leave" and we did. It just seemed amateurish and the songs were not at all memorable. The theatre is not the nicest either.

The show was amazing. The theatre feels extremely old inside, almost like you shouldn't be in there, but this just adds to the charm. We got very reasonable tickets as they were in offer at half price! And sitting in the dress circle was perfect! The ensemble numbers, solidarity in particular, were outstanding. My only criticisms would sadly be that... More

This show was on my must-do list while in London so I was happy to see my visit coincided nicely. This production differs from the Los Angeles show I saw a few years back in that it's a bigger, grander production overall. Maybe I was just overcome by the emotion of seeing the show in London, but I laughed and... More

We thoroughly enjoyed this play during a recent trip to London. The theatre has historical charm and adds to the entire experience.

Just loved it!! Such a talented cast, in particular "Billy". Staging was done brilliantly and all round great entertainment. Kept true to the story of mining in the 1980s and was a wonderful night out.

I have seen many shows in the West End and this was perfect. Every actor on the stage was outstanding. The choreography was brilliant, the music too. I would recommend this show to anyone. We were in the "cheap seats" and I could not understand why they were cheaper than the others as we saw everything. I hope to see... More

This was the surprise of the weekend for my wife. When in London we always "do a show" but I'd suggested that we wouldn't this time. That said.......you can't "Do London and not take in a show!" Having though of several of the favourites - including Les Mis, Phantom etc. I thought let's see Billy Elliot. I managed good seats... More
