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

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.

As someone from the North of England the accents of some of these actors made me giggle slightly but everything else in this show was spectacular! The theatre was intimate and ticket prices were less than $50
