If you happen to be a fan of the delightful international hit movie Billy Elliot, now you can see it brought to life in the national tour featuring a score by Elton John at The Hippodrome Theatre. Billy Elliot the Musical begins today, December 18 and runs through December 30.
Billy Elliot takes place during the 1984 British coal miners strike and tells the heartwarming story of the Elliot family, widower Jack, Billy's his older brother Tony, who are both minors and young Billy, 11 who becomes torn between his unexpected love of dance and his father and brother's unhappy feelings when they learn he's been dodging boxing class for the all-girls ballet class.
With encouragement from his best friend and ballet teacher; who the audience will recognize in the movie version as Mrs. Weasley from the Harry Potter series, we see Billy takes steps to follow his dream towards auditioning for the Royal Ballet.
Broadway.com has brought Billy Elliot the Musical to the Hippodrome with Ben Cook, 14, taking the reigns in the lead role. Cole had previously played another roll on Broadway (NY).
