Billy Elliot on Broadway
A tremendous hit in London, BILLY ELLIOT has now made its way to Broadway, where it's electrifying audiences at the Imperial Theatre. The invigorating show has earned some of the best reviews for any new musical in many years. Time Out NY called it “EXTRAORDINARILY UPLIFTING” and the New York Times proclaims it “INTOXICATING”. BILLY ELLIOT is an exciting and joyful celebration of a determined boy who follows his heart despite the odds and makes his dreams come true.
Based on the much-acclaimed British independent film, BILLY ELLIOT comes to life on stage thanks to the beloved movie’s original creative team – writer Lee Hall, director Stephen Daldry, and choreographer Peter Darling – with a little help from pop music legend Elton John, who has written a brand new original score for the musical that the New York Post says is “HIS BEST SCORE YET!”

Billy Elliot originated in the West End in 2005 at the Victoria Palace Theatre, where it was immediately an enormous hit. The London critics were overjoyed to see what was dubbed one of the finest British musicals ever. An acclaimed production in Sydney, Australia followed, and then Billy Elliot the musical finally arrived at the Imperial Theatre on Broadway where it began delighting American audiences night after night. Future productions are being planned for Chicago, Korea, and beyond.
Billy Elliot the musical has been the recipient of numerous theater awards around the world, including several Drama Desk Awards, Outer Critics Circle Awards, and most notably London's Olivier Award for Best New Musical and the Tony Award for Best Musical. The three boys who alternated the role of Billy on Broadway when it first opened jointly received the Best Actor in a Musical Tony Award.
Summary Set against the backdrop of a coal miners' strike that took place in Northern England in the mid-1980s, Billy Elliot is about a motherless young boy who wants to give up boxing and learn to be a dancer.
Age May be inappropriate for 8 and under. (It contains strong language and some scenes of confrontation between policemen and miners.) Children under the age of 4 are not permitted in the theatre.
Our Recommendation A musical version of the British film of the same name, Billy Elliot has been a huge hit in London and is now wowing Broadway. Lee Hall has written a solid and sometimes pleasantly surprising adaptation of his own screenplay, and together he and composer Elton John have created a functional score that is pretty good, though seldom soars. Billy Elliot's greatest strengths are its stars (three extraordinarily talented boys alternate in the title role), director Stephen Daldry's often inspired staging, and Peter Darling's electric choreography.
