Billy Elliot




Last week, I went to Billy Elliot, as part of our Broadway season tickets.  I have to say I was a little disappointed.  The dancing was pretty impressive, but I thought the story was pretty slow-moving and not very engaging.  The music was also kind of boring.  As I write this, I can't even think of how any of the songs went.  That said, I did think the actors were great.  The main character was played by a 14 year old boy, who was super talented.  The next show is Beauty and the Beast, so I can almost guarantee I will love it!

  1. We saw "Billy Elliot" when we were in NY. The funniest part was when my roommate posted on FB, "Just saw 'Billy Madison' the musical on Broadway! What a brilliant show!" She got a few surprised and confused comments before we all realized her error.

    1. That's awesome! I kept calling it Billy Madison, too. Maybe someone should turn that into a musical. There's already the "back to school" song in the movie!
