Called "extraordinarily uplifting" by Time Out New York and "intoxicating" by The New York Times, Billy Elliot is a joyous, exciting and feel-good celebration of one boy following his heart and making his dreams come true. Based on the critically acclaimed feature film, Billy Elliot is brought to life by the movie's original creative team and music legend Elton John.

Excellent show, funny, moving and thoroughly enjoyable. We saw Ollie Jochim playing Billy, excellent performance. A nice moment after the song Electricity when he started beaming at the audience's cheers. Will definitely make a return visit.

I must admit that Billy Elliott would not ordinarily have been my first choice of a musical. I am not a big fan of dancing and was not too bothered by the film. However, being a dutiful husband I accompanied my wife and was glad I did. The show as you would expect followed the storyline of the film. The... More

I was sceptical - I was wrong - what a fantastic MUST SEE show, A really funny show - watch out for little Micheal the cross dresser, he is brilliant. There are so may high points in the show it is impossible to name just one, you will be right there with them all the way. The whole show is... More

The standard of the show was excellent - what you'd expect from a Broadway show! Being British and picky my only complaint was the 'Geordie' accents were appalling! It didn't ruin the show one bit, just that myself and my friends were making a joke of the accents and it slightly took away the professionalism for us. But I'm sure... More

The kids are so talented, the music is very good, but I just think the movie is better because is more drama involved.

At Victoria Palace Theatre Friday 19th July. Went with friends from Glasgow, and while there was some good drama, and scenarios relevant to the events of that period, we were all shocked at the profanities, not so much from the adult cast, but from young folk & children in the cast using bad and inappropriate language . How parents can... More

My husband and I had seen Billy Elliott in London another time but wanted to take our granddaughters (14 and 16). I loved it as much the second time, and they did too. The dancing is absolutely outstanding and of interest is the time in British history that is represented. I would actually go again.

Wasn't totally sure what to expect as I had seen the film and not really enjoyed it, but it totally changed my mind. Amazing dancing and from such young people aswell, the standard was unbelievable!

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
