"Winner of 10 Tony Awards, including Best Musical!"
A true international sensation, Billy Elliot is the smash-hit Broadway musical about one boy who dared to dream against enormous odds... and soared higher than he ever imagined. Set in a British mining town during a tumultuous political era and inspired by the award-winning film, the show follows Billy as he stumbles into a ballet class when he should be boxing with his mates, and discovers he has an amazing talent for dance.
Encouraged by his teacher, Mrs. Wilkinson, but afraid to reveal his secret passion to his family, Billy slowly takes his first steps toward his destiny... and toward a new life on the stage. But with his town in the midst of a bitter mining strike and with times being especially tough, will Billy be able to realize his dream, even though his heart is telling him it's the only way? With a thrilling score by Sir Elton John, magnificent dancing and abundant humor, Billy Elliot will have you on your feet cheering with abandon and sobbing with joy at this thoroughly emotionally engaging experience. There's simply no other Broadway musical like it.
We all have dreams, but do we have the courage to embrace them like Billy does? Billy Elliot will speak to your heart because it touches on a truly universal theme - having the courage to express yourself while the world is telling you to be like everybody else. Surprisingly funny and intensely moving, the show delivers a big emotional punch while also delivering the goods when it comes to Broadway-musical excitement. This is what Broadway is all about. This is what dreams feel like. This is what you'll remember for years to come. This... is Billy Elliot.
