Reviews of Billy Elliot The Musical London West End

Billy-Elliot The Musical imageBilly Elliot the musical is the story of a very talented young boy who doesn’t have a mother in this world. As is the tradition in this area and at this time, Billy’s father wants him to take up boxing. However, the young boy discovers a passion for dancing that leads him from secret ballet lessons to an audition in London for the Royal Ballet School.

Set in the North East of England at the time of the miners’ strikes in the 1980s, in a fictional but real-life community, Billy Elliot is the celebration of a dream. He enjoys a love to dance and wishes to begin training for a career that is at first against his father’s wishes. Billy goes through an emotional journey in a world of picket lines and family struggles.
