"Just irresistible. It catches you […] in its fervent grasp, and pins you down with all the artfulness of a vintage seducer.” -The Evening Standard

"This show both artfully anatomizes and brazenly exploits the most fundamental and enduring appeal of musicals themselves. […] BILLY ELLIOT never doubts that it’s the sobriety that endures in life. Which makes those intoxicating, fleet-footed flashes of art, where leaden bodies fly and discord turns into harmony, all the more to be cherished." -The New York Times

"This irresistible show is an expertly crafted, well-oiled pleasure machine designed to make you feel exactly the way you want to feel at a musical: awed, tearful, warm of heart, slightly sheepish about loving it so much and grateful that everybody around you is cheering just as hard." -The LA Times

"This is [Elton John's] best stage score yet […] Here he's given us memorably music--by turns anthemic, folksy, and rock-and-roll rousing--that serve Hall's lyrics well." -The New York Post
BILLY ELLIOT THE MUSICAL was originally planned to premiere at the Tyne Theatre in Newcastle upon Tyne in England. Due to the production's growing budget and theatre's financial problems, however, it was abandoned. The musical later opened on the West End at the Victoria Palace Theatre on May 11, 2005, where it is still running to sold-out audiences (as of spring 2014). The show received its Australian premiere at Sydney's Capitol Theatre on November 13, 2007. It eventually transferred to Melbourne at the Her Majesty's Theatre, where it closed on June 14, 2009. The Broadway production opened at the Imperial Theatre on November 13, 2008, utilizing the same creative team as the original London production. It closed on January 8, 2012 after 1,312 regular performances. BILLY ELLIOT THE MUSICAL launched multiple national tours in the United States, though they followed a rather unconventional schedule. The first tour opened in Chicago on April 11, 2010 with an extended run at the Ford Center for the Performing Arts Oriental Theatre, which started out the multi-city tour. The tour then concluded with an early closing on November 28, when it then immediately transferred to Toronto, Canada on February 1, 2011. The second U.S. tour opened on October 30, 2010 and followed a more traditional timeline. The musical opened in Seoul, South Korea on August 10, 2010 as the first non-English speaking production. The Ogunquit Playhouse in Maine has also announced that they will be producing the regional premiere of BILLY ELLIOT THE MUSICAL in the summer of 2014.
