I didn't know what to expect I had seen the movie and enjoy it so I hoped the musical wouldn't disappoint. It didn't the signing and dancing was fantastic and the effects were super, I highly recommending watching it if you get a chance.

The first time I saw this show I spent the first 30 minutes cringing and playing 'Swear Word' Bingo ... I was on a school trip and had 30 pupils in tow ... The swearing is incidental, it is of its time and adds to the story. I did finally enjoy the show first time round but second time round... More

The swearing is a little strong, so perhaps not suitable for all little ones. teenagers and up its no problem. The acting from billy was great, and the cast was superb. The seats were comfy but the facilities in the theatre were pretty cramped with a long queue for the womens in the interval. I felt no need to buy... More

A must see when coming to London! Amazing show/production and actors were outstanding especially the young Billy and all other young actors. Would definitely recommend and having got a deal for theatre tickets we couldn't grumble at the price!

It was an extremely powerful yet elegant performance by the whole team. Can't find a single flaw with them. Seating however wasn't that great and neither were the toilet facilities. But would guess that is a sign of a successful production. Staff were very keen to help from ticket counter to bar staff and so on.

I traveled to London to see Billy Elliott for the third time. (It's not running in the U.S. any longer.) It is an amazing production full of dance, music, and a wonderful storyline. Some strong language that is integral to the story that you might want to warn the kids about. Great for all ages. The music is still in... More

After the superb movie I knew I want to see this one on the stage. And I was not disappointed, the cast was perfect and the scene as well. The story itself is really touchy, the music and singing wonderful.

First of all I from the North East , 61 years of age and solid working class. With that background it is possible to know whether what is displayed in the show is realistic ,false or just plain fiction, Sadly it is the latter two. The excessive swearing , whilst for the majority totally unnecessary is pure fabrication as to... More
