Billy Elliot to close in January

Billy Elliot

After a successful 10-month run, Billy Elliot will play its final Chicago performance on January 15, 2011. This final block of performances runs from October 26, 2010 through January 15, 2011 and includes popular holiday performances. Tickets for the final block of Billy Elliot The Musical in Chicago will go on sale Friday, July 16, 2010.

On stage now at the Ford Center for the Performing Arts, Oriental Theatre (24 W. Randolph), Billy Elliot has inspired standing ovations at every show and will celebrate its 100th performance in Chicago tonight (Wednesday, July 7). After Chicago, Billy Elliot will continue its national tour in Toronto and later San Francisco.

Based on the international smash-hit film, Billy Elliot is brought to life by the Tony-winning creative team - director Stephen Daldry, choreographer Peter Darling and writer Lee Hall - along with music legend Elton John, who has written what the New York Post calls "His best score yet!" Full of life, laughter, astonishing dancing and unforgettable music, this uplifting experience will stay with you forever.

Winner of ten 2009 Tony Awards including BEST MUSICAL, Billy Elliot delighted critics when it opened in Chicago in April 2010. Time Magazine's "BEST MUSICAL OF THE DECADE" is a joyous, exciting and feel-good celebration of one boy following his heart and making his dreams come true.

Rotating in the title role of 'Billy' are Tommy Batchelor, Giuseppe Bausilio, Cesar Corrales and J.P. Viernes. Starring in Billy Elliot are Emily Skinner (Mrs. Wilkinson), Armand Schultz (Dad), Cynthia Darlow (Grandma), Chicagoan Patrick Mulvey (Tony), Keean Johnson and Gabriel Rush (Michael), Chicagoan Samuel Pergande (Billy’s Older Self), Jim Ortlieb (George), Chicagoan Susie McMonagle (Mum), Chicagoan Blake Hammond (Mr. Braithwaite) and Maria Connelly (Debbie).

Featuring music by Elton John, book and lyrics by Lee Hall, choreographed by Peter Darling and directed by Stephen Daldry, Billy Elliot opened at Broadway’s Imperial Theatre on November 13, 2008.

Individual tickets range in price from $30 to $100. A select number of premium seats are also available. Tickets are available at all Ticketmaster.com.
